Looking to start a small business but unsure where to begin? The Feb. 6 Women's Business Development Center seminar seeks to take the mystery out of Federal 8(a), WOSB and other small business certification criteria.

The seminar led by Michelle Kantor will outline how certification programming can help small businesses. Registration is required for this free event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at 300 N. LaSalle St., Suite 2100.
