I am back in Lawrence after a great trip to Flint, Michigan on Friday for the Region 6 PTAC’s Meet the Buyer event. My luncheon keynote covered some of the most important recent developments for government contractors, including the SAM “hack,” some major pieces of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, and much more.
A big thank you to Jasmine McKenney, Maureen Miller and their colleagues for inviting me to speak. And thank you, as well, to everyone I met at the event–particularly those who stuck around after the keynote to ask such great questions.
Next up on the travel agenda: a flight south to Houston, where I’ll be presenting next week at the 17th Annual DOE Small Business Forum & Expo. Hope to see you there!
I am back in Lawrence after a great trip to Omaha, where I spoke at the SAME Omaha Post Industry Day. My talk focused on recent legal changes in federal contracting, including pieces of the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act and the SBA’s implementation of the All Small Mentor-Protege Program.
Thank you very much to Anita Larson and the rest of the Planning Committee for organizing this great event and inviting me to speak. Thank you also to all of the clients, contractors, and government representatives who stopped by my “booth” in the Exhibit Hall to ask questions and chat about the nuances of government contracts law. As much as I enjoy speaking to large groups, it’s these one-on-one discussions that make for a truly outstanding conference.
Next up for me: the Department of Energy Small Business Conference, which will be right in my backyard (Kansas City) next week. Hope to see you there!
