Registration is not required.

The Hauppauge center will also be hosting events geared at individuals looking to start their own businesses. On Feb. 19, a representative from the New York State Small Business Development Center will offer information on how to launch and operate a small business. The 9:30 a.m. event requires advance registration.

Starting at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 20, the center will also host an informational session on careers in HVAC and manufacturing.
