If you want to engage the small business owners, you have to be able to offer them something. We have ordered 50 of the "Conversion 2000:Y2K Tools for Small Businesses" kit which we want to offer to 50 of the business owners in the neighborhood. We hope to query each as to their understanding about Y2K and what they might be able to offer if there is an emergency situation. If this is productive, we'll try to do them same with the rest of the businesses, depending on volunteer support. We're going to call for volunteers from a law school in the area...see if we can interest 5 or 6 of them in becoming a team to work on this.
This is a kit produced cooperatively by the US Depts. of Commerce & Agriculture and the US SBA.
