New York, N.Y. — Dr. Michael Williams, Dean of Touro College’s Graduate School of Business, participated in a seminar titled, “The Stimulus Package: Update 2010,” on March 24 at Polytechnic Institute of New York University in Brooklyn. Presented by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Small Business Committee, the seminar addressed how businesses can benefit from stimulus funds.

The event was important for small business owners in Brooklyn, as well as the greater New York Metropolitan area. Its focus was to inform small business owners about financial resources available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and suggest strategies that would enable them to apply for and secure resources to drive their businesses.

“Education and training are key resources that will lead the nation out of recession,” Dean Williams told the audience of approximately 70 people. “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provides resources enabling individuals to acquire new knowledge, competencies, and skills that will shape their own and the nation’s future.” The seminar was simulcast on the Internet.

Topics of discussion at the event included:

  • Stimulus program recap: winners and losers
  • Is there still time to benefit from the stimulus?
  • The unveiling of President Obama’s new small business initiatives
  • Cash flow coping strategies and “hidden” ways to save money
  • Impact of proposed 2011 government spending freeze
