Barquilla said the cost of the workshop on August 19 is only $10 per person. “We realize small businesses may be challenged, especially in the current economy,” said Barquilla, “so we are keeping the cost down to cover the continental breakfast.”

Birong’s workshop will focus on understanding the accounting function in a small business, including income statements, balance sheets and cash flow statements and learning how to use those financial statements to improve performance, growth, and the value of the company.
