SC Secretary of State, Mark Hammond, to present information pertaining to Choices in Legal Structures for Business on March 19

Elaine Whitton Davis and Winthrop University, College of Business Administration, have announced the second event in the series of training seminars for small business owners for 2013.  The objective of the Whitton Best Practices Series, sponsored by Elaine Whitton Davis and developed in conjunction with Winthrop faculty, is to provide free or low cost access to current state of the art knowledge relevant to small business practice. 

It is the belief of Mrs. Davis that small businesses often do not have the resources or time to stay abreast of current topics and trends in the business world.  The Whitton Series will be delivered close to home at convenient times and at no charge to the participants

Secretary Hammond will discuss the different types of entity structures that file with their office such as LLCs, Partnerships, Sole Proprietorships, S-Corps, C-Corps etc.  He will be discussing the form requirements as well as other facts surrounding each entity choice.

Additionally we will have a local practitioner, Joanie Winters, Attorney at Law on hand to discuss which options may be the best for your business as well as the debt and legal implications of each legal business entity set up type. 

The event will be from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. on March 19th and will be held in Whitton Auditorium – Vivian M. Carroll Hall.  A reception in the Macfeat House adjacent to Carroll Hall will follow the event.

The Whitton Series is designed to support the regional business community.  For more information or to reserve your space please contact Page Bowden, Director of External Relations for the College of Business Administration, at or 803.323.2504.  Visit for more information and to register.
