The local Chamber of Commerce hosted another Business Expo this past week, staged in the Riverbank Community Center.

It has been a few years since the last one, but organizers said there were more than 20 businesses represented at the latest edition, with booths inside covering a wide range of offerings. Some were brick and mortar, storefront businesses here, others were business people who operate out of their homes. Two booths were even set up out in front of the center.

Graphic designers, insurance companies, jewelers, even the Stanislaus County Workforce Development organization was there. The Expo was staged on Thursday, June 13, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

At their booth, representatives from the county’s Workforce Development organization explained to those inquiring about the services they offer. The group works with businesses to determine the needs of in-demand occupations and develop a skilled workforce that strengthens businesses and contributes to the economic success of the community. Elsewhere, those who staff Jar Insurance described their coverage plans to those who came by their booth.

The evening was brief, not starting so early that people couldn’t get there after work, and not running late so that it would postpone dinner too much.
