Our collaboration with the Small Business Development Centers called “Next Steps for Small Business” moves to Bakersfield on Thursday, May 26. Please see the attached flyer for complete information and the link to register. I look forward to meeting small business owners in the southern San Joaquin Valley region.

Yesterday, Assembly Speaker John Perez’ bill AB 29, which would establish the Governor’s Office of Economic Development—including the Office of the Small Business Advocate—in statute, passed out of the Committee on Jobs, Economic, Development, and the Economy on a bipartisan vote of 6-0. It goes next to the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.

May is Small Business Month, and is jammed-packed with many tributes to our small business owners and opportunities to support their efforts to grow their businesses during these challenging times. Be sure to consult the GOED calendar to see what’s happening across the state. If you have a small business event you’d like added to the calendar, please email the information to our awesome intern Daisy Luna at

As always, please forward this message to your network.

Be prosperous!
