One hundred small business owners and budding entrepreneurs attended a recent seminar hosted by Pennsylvania Rep. W. Curtis Thomas (D-Philadelphia) to learn about opportunities to help grow and start their firms.
The $1.4 billion TruMark Federal Credit Union in Trevose, Pa., and the $1.2 billion American Heritage FCU in Philadelphia also participated in the Small Business Opportunities & Resources Seminar, which took place May 30, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association.
