The Business Side of Agritourism II Workshop

NC Extension Agent Training

The Business Side of Agritourism II Workshop will be held on March 10, 2010 at the Harnett County Extension Office.  This day-long workshop will offer informative sessions on website development, compliance issues (insurance, taxes and labor), using social media, other rural opportunities (fee hunting, cabin rentals, weddings, and paintball), and a panel discussion with seasoned extension agents working on agritourism.   Tourism Extension is proud to be a collaborator in this training initiative.

This training is offered to all interested NC extension field faculty.  Pre-registration is required.  The $25 registration fee will be reimbursed along with mileage for the first 40 agents who register.
