I am back in Kansas after a fantastic trip to Jacksonville, Florida, where I spent yesterday at the Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers Spring Conference. My morning general session focused on important recent developments in government contracting–everything from key provisions of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act to the impact of the RAND Corporation’s bid protest report.
It was great to see so many familiar faces. Thank you to all of the wonderful PTAC counselors who attended the session and asked great questions during the presentation and after. A big thanks to Scott Knapp of our local Kansas PTAC, who provided a warm introduction. And a special thank you to the attendees who took my advice and really did “live Tweet” about the great pink tie my daughter gave me last Father’s Day!
Spending time with the PTACers is always one of the highlights of my professional year. If you’re a government contractor who hasn’t yet connected with your local PTAC, you’re missing out. Visit the APTAC homepage to find out more.
