The CEL Core program, now in its 21st year, is a 10-month opportunity designed to help Western New York businesses and entrepreneurs improve their bottom line and be successful. The program is accepting applications for September enrollment.
Thomas Ulbrich, executive director of the CEL, and several Core program alumni will be available to answer questions.
