Discover the 2022-2023 Small Business Management Program

Monthly Thursday Morning Workshops held October '22 through June '23 | Business Advising Appointments Tailored to Your Schedule

Small Business Management Program

The Small Business Management program (SBM) is a unique combination of classroom learning, one-on-one guidance from a professional business instructional adviser, and networking with one goal: making you and your business more successful.

Over a nine-month period, you will learn about relevant management topics and meet regularly with your business adviser to help you to identify and prioritize outcomes and develop a plan to achieve them. You will benefit from classroom sessions by learning from seasoned professionals and your successful small business peers. You will learn how to take the material from the classroom and apply it directly to your business.

Classes are once a month, between October and June, lasting three hours. For the 2022-23 year, the program will be held the second Thursday of every month, from 9 a.m. to Noon. The course will be held live in Lincoln City. The 2-hour monthly one-on-one advising sessions are flexible around your busy schedule, with early morning, or evening sessions available.  We will meet with you at the Oregon Coast Community College location nearest you, or via Zoom or phone.


      • Are you committed to succeeding as a small business owner?
      • Do you have great ideas to make your business more successful, but not time to implement them?
      • Want to manage your time and financial resources to achieve a great return on investment?
      • Want to learn how social media platforms, mobile marketing tools, traditional media and more can contribute to your successful marketing strategy?
      • Want to spend more time working on your business rather than in your business?

This course will answer all of the above and MORE!

Contractors:  SBM qualifies for the 12 hours of the electives portion of the CCB mandatory continuing education requirements.

Program Cost

The SBM normally costs $900 per term. Thanks to support from the Lincoln County Commissioners and Oregon Coast Community College, this year, the cost of the program is just $300 – that’s only $100 per term! There is also an additional $50 registration fee. 

Business located in Lincoln City can take the program for FREE, thanks to the City’s ongoing commitment to including small business supports in their Economic Development Toolkit. (Note that Lincoln City businesses must still pay the $50 registration fee.)
