Using the Internet in business is next topic in series

May 1, 2000

KALAMAZOO -- A former bank executive and small-business owner will share her insights on using the Internet in business on Thursday, May 4.

Pat A. Paul will present "Working the Internet" at 6:30 p.m. in the Kalamazoo County Chamber of Commerce building, 346 W. Michigan Ave. The program, part of a monthly series of workshops offered by Western Michigan University's Women's Business Development Center, is free and open to the public.

In her talk, Paul will discuss timesaving sites and free services available on the Web as well as how to organize the overwhelming quantity of information that can be found on the Net. She also will explore how a small business can obtain its own Web site.

Paul is owner of New Heritage Enterprise, a Web consulting business. An information technology specialist, she spent 25 years as a project manager with First of America Bank, now National City.

WMU's Haworth College of Business established the Women's Business Development Center in 1999 to offer support to female professionals and entrepreneurs through training, group and individual problem-solving consultation, current business information and networking opportunities.
