To prepare local business owners with the skills and resources needed to benefit from the Marcellus Shale gas boom, the CRED partnered with Penn State Cooperative Extension to offer a webinar series that specifically focused on how local businesses can grow as a result of the Marcellus activity.

The CRED marketed the program, facilitated local discussion at each session, and used the series to further understand what local business owners need to succeed.
