SALISBURY – The Rowan IDEA Center Foundation will hold its next workshop, “Keeping Tabs on Your Critical Mass: Accounting, Insurance and Why You Need It,” from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at City Tavern, located at 113 E. Fisher St.

The entrepreneurial workshop series continues with a two-part program on establishing a good starting point for a business.

The workshop is an opportunity to understand the impact of accounting and insurance, why businesses need them and how they can help keep the business whole.

Elaine Spalding of the Rowan County Chamber of Commerce will host the panel, which will include:

• Greg Edds, chairman of the Rowan County Board of Commissioners and an agent with State Farm Insurance, a national group of insurance and financial services companies headquartered in Bloomington, Illinois. Edds has received multiple awards in the insurance industry.

• Jeremy Jacobs of GreerWalker CPAs and Advisors, a regional CPA and advisory firm headquartered in Charlotte that provides tax, assurance, accounting and business advisory services. Jacobs is based in China Grove.

• Semone Brisso, an accounting coach and educator for Small Business Centers in the N.C. Community College System. Brisson also provides accounting services for QuickBooks setup, implementation and training for small to midsize businesses and nonprofit groups.

The IDEA Center Foundation holds monthly sessions on the second Tuesday of each month at City Tavern. Its January session will be “Your IT: Infotech for Startups.”
