April 5 Workshop to Address Uncertainties and Risks of
Managing a Business on New York's Coastlines

To be successful coastal businesses must deal with the increasing uncertainties related to the waterfront economy and to fisheries. On April 5 New York Sea Grant will offer a workshop to help New York's coastal businesses adapt their management decision-making as the water-based natural resources and economic climate change and anticipate new markets and business opportunities.

The Managing Coastal Businesses in Times of Resource and Economic Uncertainties and Risks Workshop will be offered in Auburn at the Holiday Inn on Wednesday, April 5 from 10 am to 3 pm.

"Business owners, particularly those with businesses directly tied to natural resources that by their very nature have inherent uncertainties, make daily decisions that involve risk. "This new workshop will help answer the question: 'How can I accommodate unknowns into making better business management decisions to not only stay in business but take advantage of new opportunities,'" says David White, Marine Facilities Specialist with New York Sea Grant's Great Lakes Program, Oswego.

Workshop presenters include experts in natural resource economics, marketing, tourism and small business management from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Cornell Cooperative Extension and the New York and Ohio Sea Grant programs.

Topics will address understanding risk, reaching new and diverse customers, current trends in coastal resource users, and making business decisions in times of uncertainty. A Business Success Panel will feature representatives of the charter boat, diving, lodging, marina, boat sales and tourism promotion industries.

To register for the workshop, call New York Sea Grant at 315-312-3042 and send a $20 workshop fee payable to Cornell University to New York Sea Grant, SUNY Oswego, Oswego, NY 13126 by March 31, 2006.
