Do you Backcountry Ski? Interested in forming a BC advocacy group?

I am an avid BC skier and I see so much pottential in our sawtooth mountains for great backcountry skiing. I am seeking individuals, businesses and other groups who would like to advocate, organize and work to see the Sawtooths become a regional destination for off piste skiing. If hut to hut skiing, gladed downhill runs and a happening BC scene  on the shore appeal to you, please consider coming to an informal gathering/meeting Sunday, December 20, 6:00PM at Lutsen Recreation, Inc. 245 Ski Hill Rd., Lutsen, MN. Feel free to contact me if you are interested but can not attend. Thanks and here's to fresh turns in the Arrowhead!!

Cook County Higher Education Employee Manual/Handbook Workshop

Cook County Higher Education has partnered with SBDC's Pat Campanaro to bring you a series of workshops.

Employee Manual/Handbook Workshop
Wed, December 15th, 2015 from 8:30am-10:00am
RSVP: 218-387-3411 or or
Cost: $30 (Coffee and light snacks will be served)

Stop the mind reading. Employees Need to Know YOUR expectations for their performance.

An employee handbook is an important communication tool between you and your employees. A well-written handbook details your expectations for your employees, and describes what they can expect from your company. It also should describe your legal obligations as an employer, and your employees' rights.

Do you have an employee manual? Do you need help improving your employee manual?

In this session Pat Campanaro will discuss why employees manuals are so important and what they should include.
