Chamber speakers to discuss business succession

The next installment of the Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s speaker series will feature two speakers discussing the process of business succession planning.

The presentation starts at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 4 at the Bellingham Golf and Country Club.

Speakers Bob Sytsma and Justin Remaklus of VSH CPAs will discuss the process of selling a business including valuation and step-by-step planning. They will take questions from the audience throughout the presentation.

“The questions will raise specific issues that local businesses are facing and our expert panel will be able to provide guidance based on each individual’s question,” said chamber CEO Guy Occhiogrosso, in a press release.

The event costs $25 for chamber members and $35 for nonmembers and includes lunch. Alcoa Intalco Works and VSH CPAs are sponsors for the event.
