2010 marked the first year of EAC's existence as an independent 501(c)3. What a remarkable year it was! We were able to continue to coordinate our Business Plan competition for local high school students. In the past, some of our competitors have actually started their own businesses, and others have told us that the competition helped them to secure college internships. In 2010, we also continued our practice of offering valuable educational opportunities to our local small business community. We offered presentations on how to secure state grants and tax credits, how to use social media for marketing, and a recent educational presentation on the implications of the new health care legislation for small business. Finally, we held our first Community-Wide Business Plan competition in 2010. The plans that we received were extremely well written and we hope that our winner will be able to use their prize package to become a business success.
