Client Release

I request business counseling service from the Western Dairyland Business Center (WDBC), a resource partner of the Small Business Administration (SBA). I agree to cooperate should I be selected to participate in surveys designed to evaluate WDBC or SBA services. I permit WDBC and SBA the use of my name and address for WDBC or SBA surveys and information mailings regarding WDBC or SBA products and services. I understand that any information disclosed will be held in strict confidence. (WDBC and SBA will not provide your personal information to commercial entities.) I authorize WDBC and SBA to furnish relevant information to the assigned management counselor(s).

I further understand that the counselor(s) agrees not to: 1) recommend goods or services from sources in which he/she has an interest, and 2) accept fees or commissions developing from this counseling relationship. In consideration of the counselor(s) furnishing management or technical assistance, I waive all claims against WDBC and SBA personnel, and that of its Resource Partners and host organizations, arising from this assistance.

Please note: The estimated burden for completing this form is 18 minutes. You are not required to respond to any collection information unless it displays a currently valid OMB approval number. Comments on the burden should be sent to: U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 3rd Street, SW, Washington, DC 20416, and to: Desk Officer SBA, Office of Management and Budget, New Executive Office Building, Room 10202, Washington, D.C., 20503.
