CSUS Center for Small Business
provides free management assistance

The California State University, Sacramento Center for Small Business is now accepting requests for free management assistance from small businesses in the Sacramento region. Applications for assistance are available by calling (916) 278-7278.

Beginning its 34th year of operation, the center is one of the oldest and largest in the United States. From its modest beginnings, when the center worked with seven companies, its students now assist more than 100 companies each year. Working under faculty supervision, the students give advice and guidance across a full-range of management issues except taxation, law and loan packaging.

"Demand for our services has increased significantly," said Dennis H. Tootelian, center director. "Last year, our students spent more than 7,100 hours working with our clients."

The center's services are made possible through the support of several local banks, the Sacramento Municipal Utilities District, and REsource Capital.

Looking forward, Tootelian said he is very optimistic: "We are exploring ways to stay ahead of the changing times and will continue to expand the services we offer and find new means for delivering services."

For more information, contact Tootelian at (916) 278-6203. Media: For assistance, call CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
