Join us for a free certification workshop in honor of Women’s History Month: Certifications that May Help you Expand Your Business with Government Contracts..
Considering certification and want the inside scoop? Wonder if it would help to become M/WBE, WOSB, HUBZone, DBE or 8(a) certified? Want to know more about what these designations mean?
Presenters will discuss the new City of Columbia Supplier Diversity Program and Directory of Minority & Women Owned Businesses, SBA’s 8(a) Business Development, Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone),
Women-Owned Small Business/Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB/EDWOSB), and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) programs; State of Missouri M/WBE certification; and federal DBE certification. A representative from the Missouri Procurement Technical Assistance Center will also
present about assistance they provide in obtaining government contracts.
