Free Webinar Series offered on S. C. Government Agencies


COLOMBIA, SC (WMBF) - The popular webinar series, South Carolina State Government: Bit by Bit continues with four webinars scheduled in early 2014. The series is a look into the websites of South Carolina state government agencies to find information about South Carolina.

• Outreach to Businesses – Wednesday, January 15, 11 a.m. – noon. Beginning or operating a business in South Carolina demands constant attention to state regulations, registrations, fees and taxes. Much of this now can be accomplished through SCBOS (South Carolina Business One Stop), South Carolina's Business Portal. Registration:

• Secretary of State – Tuesday, February 11, 11 a.m. – noon. The Secretary is a Constitutional Officer of the State and the Office has a long history of certification and registration of incorporations, securities, trademarks, the Uniform Commercial Code, elections, and now charities and lobbyists. Registration:

• Department of Revenue, Comptroller General, State Treasurer – Thursday, March 18, 11 a.m. – noon. Money, money, money: where it comes from, where it goes and who keeps track. Annual publications and the transparency website can provide some information on the state's wealth, income, and out-flow. Registration:

• Questions and Complaints: Whom to Call – Thursday, April 17, 11 a.m. – noon. Although you will never go wrong calling the South Carolina State Library with a question, there are offices and individuals in state government that can help an individual find information or get assistance with a problem or question.
