Community Resource Development

.....

As St. Lucie County grows so too do the opportunities for residents to meet the needs of their community using their entrepreneurial mind-set. Residents can succeed when provided with tools aimed at turning that small business concept into a reality. Community Resource Development is focused on providing information and resources to the community related to business development, retention, and expansion on the Treasure Coast. Such topics as customer service skills, business licensing, commercial insurance, funding sources, and human resources skills are just a sampling of the offerings to be provided in this relatively new area of programming. The goal is to build the small business community in St. Lucie County and encourage sustainable living for consumers and business leaders. The Community Resource Development Agent is also available to provide research-based, non-biased information on personal finance and consumer topics.
