A webinar titled "Challenges and Growth in a Bubbling Economy" will be presented from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Aug. 27, led by Brad Ehrhart, president of the Portage Development Board. His goal is to help area businesses learn about available resources to help them jump on the economic upswing wave. He will share narratives about recent successes that provided significant growth for key Portage County companies and will give pointers about how a company can get the most out of similar opportunities available.

Ehrhart and his staff have worked with Portage County companies to identify opportunities for growth and to capitalize on resources available to help businesses rebound from the last few years' recession.

Also included will be information about how to find workers to fill job openings, at the area's very first virtual career fair for hardhat/blue-collar positions. Registration is required, as a maximum of 125 participants can access this webinar, To register, visit https://www.fuzemeeting.com/webinar/register/1027711.
