Sustainability design course to cover business planning tools March 27 in Canton
Monday, March 26, 2012 - 2:05 pm

CANTON – The next Sustainability Series Presentation at SUNY Canton is Sustainable Business Planning Tools with accounting professor Christa Kelson, at 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 27.

As part of the Sustainability Design course that is hosting this series of talks, students have committed to a semester-long ecological project on campus.

The aim of this talk is to provide accounting and business tools helpful to generate a cost-savings or cost-benefit summary. Kelson will discuss payback, timeline, opportunity costs, and the value of money. She will also show a rough outline of a business plan for students or others who want to move their ideas into a viable start-up business.

This Tuesday night lecture series features a different speaker on topics related to sustainability each week through April.

All lectures are free and open to the public from 5 to 6 p.m. most Tuesdays in Nevaldine North 102. Parking is free for visitors -- bear right at the Y once on campus and then left into the second Nevaldine parking lot.

More Tuesday talks include Michael O’Connor on April 3 on emergency and disaster management; April 17, Chelle Lindahl and Melinda Ely, discussing “The Hub: Local Food for the North Country,”; and April 24, Gail Brill of The Community Store in Saranac Lake.
