Thank you to Alexander, Thompson, Arnold PLLC for sponsoring our January Business Matters! Al Creswell gave a great presentation on proposed tax changes and the upcoming tax season.
WLJT loves the Obion County Chamber! Monica Cochran, General Manager and CEO of WLJT, and I were so pleased to be able to support the chamber and sponsor the November Business Matters. We enjoyed sharing information about West Tennessee's public television station with fellow chamber members. We answered questions about programming and why WLJT is not on satellite in Obion County. It all comes down to the way the FCC decides what television market each station is aired in. But it's important to remember that we are still West Tennessee's public television station, and we rely on your support! WLJT is in your local schools, WLJT is at The Obion County Public Library and WLJT is active in your community. We help encourage a lifetime love of learning by brining special educational events that show children that learning IS fun!
We ended our last Business Matters of 2016 with a bang! Our December Business Matters sponsor was Leaders Credit Union! Their vice President of Marketing, Leigh Anne Bentley, spoke about social media practices that will best benefit your business!
Our Business Matters topic for November was fraud within our elderly communities. Magnolia Place in Union City provided the speaker and were our sponsor as well.
BUSINESS MATTERS THIS MONTH WILL BE ON TUESDAY DECEMBER 13TH FROM 7:45 AM - 3 AM
