Local Business Leaders Enjoy No-Cost Seminar Series

ST. HELENS, Ore., November 18, 2014: St. Helens Community created a buzz throughout the local business community with a series of no-cost seminars titled, “Protecting Your Business.” The seminar, which was well attended, was presented in Rainier, St. Helens and Scappoose.

The seminar was designed to help local business owners mitigate the risks of scams and fraud. Those who attended were given the tools to spot counterfeit checks and currency, avoid identity theft, and put best practices into place for accepting plastic and managing business finances.

“We even had local law enforcement on-site to answer questions,” stated St. Helens Community Chief Operations Officer, Robin Balza. “We were thrilled to see so many local business owners attend. We’re planning on doing more of these business-focused seminars in the future with additional topics.”

Melanie Stewart, Controller with Pacific Stainless Products was impressed with the seminar.

“St. Helens Community offers everything a business needs, including these local seminars,” Stewart said when asked about the credit union. “The resources brought in for the seminar were helpful and interesting.”


The seminars took place on November 5, 6 and 13 at the Credit Union’s Rainier, St. Helens and Scappoose branches, respectively.
