The Oakland Chinatown Chamber Of Commerce
holds several seminars & workshops a year.
Presented in or around the Chinatown area,
the Chamber's seminars and workshops are
always free, and offer a great way to
reach local Chinatown merchants or anyone
that may have an interest in doing business
in Oakland Chinatown. To accommodate local
merchants, Chamber seminars are often
bilingual and sometimes entirely in Chinese.
Topics may cover a wide range of subjects,
such as how to start a small business,
or maybe information on government services
and programs available to local merchants
and minority business owners, or perhaps
a discussion of changes in local business
ordinances, or changes to Oakland Chinatown
and the surrounding area that may affect
the Oakland Chinatown's business climate.
The Chamber often partners with other
organizations on a seminar. Sometimes
this may be a Chamber member organization
that may have services to offer to local
merchants or it may be local government
organizations that may have some information,
programs or services that would be of
interest to local merchants.
