Each of the three cities and their partner Chambers of Commerce have scheduled an event that is open to all small businesses in the Tri-Valley. The first of these, a "Small Business Resource Fair", will be hosted by the Livermore Chamber on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015 from 9:00 to 11:00 am at the Robert Livermore Community Center.  This will be followed by the Pleasanton Chamber's hosting of a "Tech Talk" event in July. Finally, businesses can "Meet the Lenders" at an event hosted by the Dublin Chamber in October.  The series will culminate with "Small Business Saturday" on November 28, 2015.  Information about each event is available at www.dublin.ca.gov/businessseminars.
