The executive director of the Business Incubator Center in Grand Junction has been appointed to a state small business council.
Jon Maraschin was among eight members appointed to the Small Business Council whose four-year terms will expire in 2016. The terms for five other members of the council will expire in 2015.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper appointed the members of the council, which recommends regulatory and statutory changes at all levels of government to encourage the start, growth and stability of small businesses.
