COVID-19 Update

To our clients and partners,

In this challenging time, we want to share with you how the Temple Small Business Development Center is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have made some changes in our office operations in an effort to keep our staff, partners, and clients safe while maintaining business operations.

Beginning Monday, March 16th, and until further notice, we have cancelled all in-person training events and we are no longer accepting walk-ins. Please do not visit any of our offices without contacting us in advance.

We have the technology and tools in place that enable our employees to work outside of the office. As a result, we have the full capability to keep business operations running smoothly, including video and audio conferencing technology. Our business operations will continue as usual during our normal workweek hours. Our entire staff is available to you via email, phone, or teleconference. Our team is focused on providing quality service for all clients. We are collecting a list of helpful resources, webinars, and recordings that can be accessed HERE. It is updated daily.

We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and inform you of any additional changes we implement to insure the safety of our employees and the communities we serve. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time. Should you have any questions or need any additional information, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
