I am back in Lawrence after a great trip to Philadelphia, where I spoke at the 11th Annual Veterans Business Training and Outreach Conference. My presentation focused on recent legal changes important to SDVOSBs and VOSBs, including major changes to the SDVOSB joint venture requirements and the new “all small” mentor-protege program.
Many thanks to Clyde Stoltzfus and his team at the Southeast Pennsylvania PTAC for organizing this great event and inviting me to speak. And of course, a big “thank you” as well to everyone who attended the presentation, asked great questions, and followed up after the event.
Next on my travel agenda, I’ll be at the National Veterans Small Business Engagement in Minneapolis from November 1-3. I will present four Learning Sessions at the NVSBE, and will spend my “spare” time manning the Koprince Law LLC booth on the tradeshow floor. If you’ll be attending the 2016 NVSBE, I look forward to seeing you there!
I am back in Lawrence after a great trip to Huntsville, Alabama, where I spoke at the Redstone Edge Conference. My presentation focused on the recent major developments in small business contracting, including the changes to the limitations on subcontracting and the new universal mentor-protege program.
Many thanks to Courtney Edmonson, Scott Butler, Michael Steen, and the rest of the team at Redstone Government Consulting for putting together this impressive event and inviting me to participate. A big “thank you” as well to everyone who attended the presentation, asked great questions, and followed up after the event.
Next on my travel agenda, I’ll be in Wichita this Friday for a comprehensive half-day session on joint venturing and teaming for federal government contracts, sponsored by the Kansas PTAC. Hope to see you there!
I am back in Lawrence after a great Midwestern driving trip last week, where I spoke at two fantastic government contracting events.
I recently had the pleasure to discuss important government contracting legal updates and their effects on small businesses, at the 11th Annual Veterans Business Conference at Fort Bliss (in El Paso). The Contract Opportunities Center did a fantastic job organizing the conference, which brought together small businesses and government agencies for a wide-ranging discussion on government contracting. My presentation discussed many of the topics we’ve been following at SmallGovCon, including the SBA’s new small business mentor-protégé program, changes to the limitation on subcontracting, and, of course, the Supreme Court’s Kingdomware decision.
I also enjoyed meeting many of the small business owners and government representatives who attended the event. If you attended the conference, it would be great to hear from you.
Thanks to the COC for a great event—I hope to see you again next year!

It’s been a year of big changes in the government’s SDVOSB programs. First came the Kingdomware Supreme Court decision, which was soon followed by the SBA’s final rule adopting a new “universal” mentor-protege program–and imposing many new requirements on SDVOSB joint ventures.
On Thursday, August 4, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. Central, I will host a free webinar to discuss these important changes. To register, just follow this link and complete the brief electronic form, or call Jen Catloth of Koprince Law LLC at (785) 200-8919.
