SBA to host panel discussions on government contracts

The U.S. Small Business Administration will host two panel discussions dealing with small businesses and government contracts during the 23rd annual Teaming to Win conference in Morgantown May 28-29 at the Erickson Alumni Center.

Both sessions will take place May 29. The first one will start at 10:30 a.m. with a “What’s New, What’s Next, What’s Needed” discussion. A panel of government representatives will provide advice on what’s new in innovations, what’s next in trends and what are the upcoming federal contracting opportunities.

The second panel discussion will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and is titled “IMPACT! On Small Business.” Experts will provide advice on the best ways to not only survive but thrive during difficult and challenging times – debunking the “too big to fail, too small to survive” motto.

“I encourage small businesses to take advantage of these panel discussions,” said Judy McCauley, director of SBA’s West Virginia District Office. “It’s not often that this many government contracting experts are in the same room to provide guidance and answer questions.”

Later that evening, SBA’s 2013 West Virginia Small Business award winners will be honored during a dinner at the Teaming to Win Conference. McCauley invites everyone to join her in recognizing these small business leaders. Registration and payment can be made at
