SBDC DAY - March 20, 2019

Past But Not Forgotten

Each Spring SBDCs around the country create special events for their clients. At Northwest we create intensive training opportunities for our clients. This year 2019,  we hosted free webinars on a full range of topics to enable our clients, and site-visitors to have access to webinars that can help their businesses operate more efficiently. Avail yourself of the myriad of resources available to small businesses through NW-NJSBDC. 

Pay Equity Program


The “Diane B. Allen Act” was signed into law in early 2018, and became officially active as of July 1, 2018.  Considered one of the most comprehensive and pro-employee equal pay laws in the United States, it significantly expands equal pay protections under the NJLAD (New Jersey Law Against Discrimination) -- and even beyond the federal Equal Pay Act.

While principally aimed at the gender wage gap, the act applies to all protected classes -- paving the way for disparate wage claims on the basis of race, age and any other status protected by the NJLAD.

We will be providing essential insights and action steps that will help employers comply with this critical legislation; including:







Avalara: Importance of Streamlined Sales Tax



Streamlined Sales Tax (SST) has never been more important for remote sellers than it is today. With the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., which gave states more authority to impose sales tax obligations on remote sellers, you may be wondering how you can help your clients comply with the new laws.

Join us as Scott Peterson, Vice President of U.S. Tax Policy and Government Affairs at Avalara and first Executive Director of the SST Governing Board, presents on:


  • What SST is and why it matters to your clients

  • Key features and benefits

  • How you can help your clients determine SST eligibility

  • How to get involved in sharing the importance of SST


OwnersPath Success Scan



So what's the biggest challenge that you face in your business. Most business owners report that it's a constraint on their resources - having enough money and time to do all that needs to be done. So we can show you how to optimize the use of your time and a means to getting access to more money..


If you're curious we'll explain how taking a 30 second business scan will provide the means to show you how to get more time and money for your business. The good news is that the scan is free, does not create an credit inquiry, and profiles your digital footprint in the marketplace.

The results show how much can be funded and what resources should be realigned to maximize your funding. Typically businesses get 4 to 5 times the amount that you would get if you applied on your own. How is this possible? Learn how on SBDC Day by attending this webinar.
