Valuable information provided at small business meeting
July 25, 2013
The ACC Office of Small Business Programs conducted its quarterly workshop July 16 where small businesses gain knowledge about government programs.
The workshop concentrated on the specific needs of Service Disabled Veterans and Veteran Owned businesses, according to Dawn Robinson, ACC Small Business Office SDV/VO program manager.
Robinson said participants have an opportunity to network with other small business owners and discuss proper strategies about contracting with larger companies.
"The purpose of the workshops is for the participants to get out of the usual settings and interact and network with other small business owners," Robinson said. "The intention is for the participants to be better able to support their ideas."
Mary Jane Fleming, a procurement counselor with the University of Alabama-Huntsville Small Business Development Center and Procurement Technical Assistance Center, conducted a presentation on how PTAC helps small businesses find answers to contracting questions by helping navigate the Federal Acquisition Regulations.
The next workshop will be conducted in August. For more information, contact Constance Jones-Hambrick, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 256-955-5402.
