Idaho Falls mayor declares small business day 

Idaho Falls Mayor Jared Fuhriman, the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce and the Idaho Department of Labor have united to propose a day of events for small business in the Idaho Falls region.
The day is conceived as an opportunity to educate employers about finance, health care, marketing and other business strategies, KPVI-TV reports.
“We are highly concerned about the employers in this community,” Wade Virgin, spokesman for Idaho Department of Labor, said. “We see many of them struggling that are just barely making ends meet, holding on until the recession improves.”
Small businesses employ the majority of workforce in the Idaho Falls community. A small business failure means fewer jobs. And that is what the three branches are trying to prevent.
There will be three parts to it. In the morning, Governor Otter will speak, followed by a discussion panel of business advisors and economists. In the afternoon, there will be a business-to-business connection and that all will be followed by a jobs fair in the evening for people seeking jobs.
Fuhriman said, “We just want to try and provide a little bit of hope that we are going to be able to survive this and we’re going to be stronger than ever. In the meantime, we’re just going to offer some of these processes to try and help them out.”
“The Mayor’s Business Day” will begin Monday March 8th at 8 a.m. at the Civic Auditorium in Idaho Falls.
