Measuring Business Success with Key Performance Indicators

March 10, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am


March 6, 2020 – As a prevention strategy to minimize COVID-19 spread, Kitsap Business Forum scheduled for March 10, 2020, is postponed. Measuring Business Success with Key Performance Indicators will be rescheduled for a future date.

As of this writing, Kitsap County has no confirmed cases, but public health officials believe COVID-19 will continue to spread in Washington. Since the situation is evolving, Kitsap Business Forum is opting to do its part to protect the health of our community and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This event listing will be updated when the forum is rescheduled.
