Speaker to Address ‘Affordable Care Act’ at DCCC Small Business Event

Sept 24, 2013 – In response to the many questions and concerns that small business owners have about the upcoming Affordable Care Act requirements, the Small Business Center at DCCC has invited Debbie Wright, human resources and business consultant, to help shed light on the new law. 

The event will take place from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 30 in the Mary E. Rittling Conference Center on DCCC’s Davidson campus. The event is free and open to the public; registration is not required.

Area small business owners and employees are invited for a presentation and discussion on the Affordable Care Act, a comprehensive health reform that will go into effect on Oct. 1.

Martha Larson, director of the DCCC Small Business Center, notes that affordable health care is a top concern for America’s 28 million small businesses.

“As a business owner, it’s important to understand how the Affordable Care Act may affect your business,” says Larson. “However, with so many misconceptions about how the new laws work, this can be difficult – getting clear information will be beneficial as the deadline approaches.”

Wright, a Worker’s Compensation Risk Specialist with Breakthrough Access Solutions, LLC, has presented on this topic previously for chambers of commerce in the area. Following the presentation, she will open the floor for a question-and-answer session.
