Last $150 FastTrac® GrowthVenture™ in Greenwood Feb. 18 - Apr. 21, 2008

Our very last $150 FastTrac® GrowthVenture™ course in Greenwood starts in 2 weeks and runs Feb. 18 - Apr. 21, 2008 (Mon. nights 6-9).

It’s our last one at $150 because the state FastTrac® program announced a more than doubling of the price effective Mar. 1. Even then, it will still be a remarkable discount from the $895 retail price.

Registration & payment is at www.fasttracSC.org. The Charleston Metro Chamber is handling payment arrangements.

Class size is limited, so those interested should register as soon as they decide.

Meets Monday nights 6 - 9 pm for 10 sessions in the Greenwood County Clemson Extension Conference Room (107 Park Plaza Building, 600 Monument Street, Greenwood, SC). Registration and information at www.fasttracSC.org. Payment of $150 program fee by credit card is accepted at that website. Payment confirmation # is issued by the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce.
