March 2013 Program Speaker

Harriott Balmer, owner of Evergreen Services and a founding member of Graham Business Association in 1975, will present a talk on Health Care Reform at the March 20 meeting.  Although her talk will focus on what small business owners will  need to know about the Affordable Care Act, all attendees will learn how it will affect everyone.
