“If your business would like to sell products or services to the government or to a prime contractor I encourage you to attend,” said Tamaya Oldenhoff,  JCEDC Assistant Director. “Buyers from government as well as prime contractors will be there for one-on-one meetings with you.”

Topics include:

• Contracting opportunities in emergency preparedness and disaster relief

• Networking and roundtables

• Growing business capacity and capabilities

• Capabilities statement competition and exhibit

• Current issues in government contracting

• Financing and bonding for small businesses

• Social media and data security

Registration is required, and the registration fee does not include transportation or lodging. However, some meals are included.

In addition, JCEDC is hosting a government grant opportunities seminar July 29, immediately prior to the conference.

The seminar is especially relevant for city administrators, fire/rescue and ambulance services, to learn where and how to tap into grants that can help their communities.

The event is free, but registration is required. Registration is from 8-9 a.m., with the program to follow from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at Lemonweir Valley Telcom, 127 US Hwy. 12, Camp Douglas.
