NEVADA CITY, Calif. December 19, 2012 - Sierra Commons has every reason to celebrate. 14 new graduates of the Business Ignitor Course and numerous community members joined Executive Director Robert Trent as he announced the next step in the non-profit's growth - a move to a new location at 792 Searls Avenue in Nevada City.
The non-profit small business education and incubation organization has been looking to expand for some time to provide more office space to share and conference rooms available to anyone.
Previous plans to move to the Nevada City Vets Hall proved to be unfeasible as other businesses and organizations already use that facility to almost maximum capacity.
The new location (in front of Holdrege & Kull Engineering) provides everything Sierra Commons needs at this stage. The move will be done by mid-January.
Trent was beaming as he announced during the Ignitor Graduate Showcase Party the group's new home. He also introduced the 14 grads of the Business Ignitor 4.0 to the guests.
Max Norton, President of Sierra Commons' board, announced more good news: "Today a group of donors is offering a 100% match on the next $1,500 we receive in online donations. That means you can give $100, and Sierra Commons will receive $200 to further our charitable goals. Your tax-deductible contribution--of any size--will help us take advantage of this opportunity."
