Carroll Community College Offers Entrepreneurship Conference

Westminster, Md., — Carroll Community College (Carroll) will offer an Annual Entrepreneurship Conference on Saturday, April 27 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., titled “Making Art Your Business: Reinvention=Success” in room K 100. The cost is $39, and includes breakfast and lunch.

The conference provides an opportunity for local artists to network, share success stories, and learn more about the business of art. Anne Yoch Russell will be keynote speaker. Several breakout sessions will allow participants to meet in smaller groups.

“Speakers will address how successful art business owners continually reinvent themselves to remain profitable,” said Carroll’s Coordinator of the Miller Center for Small Business Marlene Titus, who helped to develop the conference.
