Dena Beck,,Center for Rural Affairs
Lyons, Nebraska –Do you have a plan to transfer your business or farm to the next generation? Two out of three businesses lack a written strategic plan for business succession, and most companies have no plan of any kind.
On Tuesday, September 25, 2007 a dinner meeting designed for business owners and farmers to discuss business succession will be conducted at the Speakeasy, 72993 S Road, Holdrege (between Holdrege and Wilcox) beginning at 6:30 pm.

Small business means big things for rural Nebraska towns and communities, and the success of these businesses is vital.  All businesses will transfer at some stage of their life cycle.

The deadline to register is September 18, 2007 and may be made by contacting the Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce at 308-995-4444 or  

The P*K Leadership will host the organization along with Principal Financial and the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City – Omaha branch.  The Rural Enterprise Assistance Project (REAP) along with 16 other members of the P*K Leadership will help sponsor the business workshop.
