MBA Presents First Seminar in Education Series

Attorney Diana Bartolotta of B-Law and Enza Dandeneau of Prudential CT RealtyOn Thursday, March 19, Enza Dandeneau of Prudential CT Realty, Glastonbury office, hosted the first in a series of educational seminars for the MBA. Ms. Dandeneau, along with over 20 attendees, networked and enjoyed refreshments. Ms. Dandeaneu, a Realtor with over twenty years experience, says “Marlborough is holding its own in this economy. We haven't seen the big hits like California, Florida or Nevada have taken. We continue to see people moving to the area both from in state and out of state.” Ms. Dandeneau also handed out information regarding current market activity specific to Marlborough. MBA Education Committee Chairman Diana Bartolotta, of B-Law, was the evening's guest speaker. The presentation titled, “A Healthy Business Checklist”, focused on several key topics. Attorney Bartolotta defined different entities such as LLCs, LLPs, corporations, partnerships, and the pros and cons for each of them. Attorney Bartolotta discussed the risks you may be exposing yourself and your business too with each entity. She also covered the difference between employees and independent contractors, as well as franchises and independent businesses. Contracts, marketing materials and business planning were also discussed. She made it an interactive presentation, taking questions from the group throughout her presentation. Attorney Bartolotta noted that she is seeing more litigation between employees and employers, more consumer disputes and a lot of uncertainty. Handouts were distributed, and included an article from the Commercial Record focusing on the uncertainty for small businesses especially in this economic climate. Future topics for the educational series include legislative issues affecting small businesses, marketing your small business and insurance needs for the small business owner. Monthly meetings are open to members and guests, and there is no cost to attend. The next monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, April 16 at Sadler's Ordinary beginning at 8:30 a.m.
