KALAMAZOO--Setting up an accounting system for a small business will be topic of the first training session offered by Western Michigan University's newly established Women's Business Development Center.

Dr. A.J. Cataldo, a faculty member in the Department of Accountancy of WMU's Haworth College of Business, will address the topic of "Setting Up Your Books," from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 1, at the Kalamazoo YWCA, 353 E. Michigan Ave.

The public is invited to attend the free presentation, which is co-sponsored by the YWCA. Individuals interested in attending are encouraged to call the Women's Business Development Center at (616) 387-2714 to reserve a seat.

This is the first in a series of workshops that the Women's Business Development Center will offer. The center was recently created by the Haworth College of Business to provide support to women business owners, potential owners and professionals through training, group and individual problem-solving consultation, current business information and networking opportunities. WMU faculty and volunteers from the business and professional community serve as speakers, trainers and mentors. The center is directed by Pat Guenther, who is also assistant director of WESTOPS, the University's Office of Public Service.
