| District Director Mark S. Hayward Hosts Melissa Travis Starting Now! Rhode Island is home to a wide variety of business resources that focus on helping the small business community grow. To help increase awareness of these resources, the SBA has created “Mondays With Mark,” a live discussion hosted by District Director (DD) Mark S. Hayward. Every Monday at 11:00am, DD Hayward will be joined by a different leader from the local small business community, to discuss topics like technical assistance, funding programs, and more. The first segment will feature Melissa Travis, President & CEO of the Rhode Island Society of Certified Public Accountants (RISCPA)/RI Business Forum. Travis will share details about the services RISCPA offers small businesses (including free CPA assistance with COVID-related matters) and the events RISCPA/RI Business Forum holds to promote business growth in the state. From pivoting your business model and utilizing more online resources to grow your brand, to the latest information on COVID vaccinations, on-site testing for employees, reopening plans and more, you won’t want to miss a second! Each week, we will announce who will be joining DD Hayward for the following week’s segment. No registration is not required to attend, and audience participation and questions are strongly encouraged. We look forward to seeing you Monday’s at 11:00am.
