FORSYTH, Mo. –University of Missouri Extension in Greene County is hosting “The Affordable Care Act for Your Business” from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Monday, Dec. 16 at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic Ave, Springfield. The Greene County Extension Center is located inside the Botanical Center in Nathanael Greene Park.

Business owners can register for the workshop at https://aca-for-your-business.eventbrite.com or call the University of Missouri Extension office in Taney County at 417-546-4431.


The free event is open to all small business owners and will feature Small Business Majority’s Health Coverage Guide, Mary Moore, who will discuss the topics most relevant to small businesses.

Relevant workshop topics include small business tax credits, FTE calculation, and detailed information on the Missouri health insurance marketplace including upcoming deadlines for enrollment. A question and answer period will follow the discussion, as well as an opportunity for those who would like to discuss additional needs with SHOP enrollment and make appointments for one-on-one assistance.

“We believe it’s important for small business owners to learn more about the healthcare law and how it affects them,” said Chrystal Irons, a business development specialist with University of Missouri Extension. “These interactive dialogues are a great way for them to get the information they need to understand and comply with key provisions of the new law.”


This workshop is made possible by joint sponsorships with University of Missouri Extension and the Small Business & Technology Development Center, Missouri State University SBTDC, Small Business Majority and the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The MO SBTDC is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
