Wednesday, May 23: The TAMIU-SBDC, in conjunction with the Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid: Legal Assistance to Microenterprise Project (L.A.M.P.) will provide a seminar designed to assist potential and existing business owners with legal issues.  This free of charge seminar is scheduled from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the TAMIU Student Center, room 120.
