I am excited to announce that I will be speaking at the 51st Annual National Seminar on Government Contracts in St. Paul, Minnesota, on Tuesday, September 18, 2012. My program will provide an overview of the federal government’s small business contracting programs, and is entitled, “Small Business Contracting: What You Need to Know About the ‘Other’ 23 Percent of Federal Prime Contracts.”
As a native of Grand Forks, North Dakota–about a stone’s throw from the Minnesota border–the Twin Cities were the closest large American metropolitan area (among bigger cities generally, Winnipeg is closer). I grew up hearing Twins games on the radio and suffering through some epic Vikings playoff meltdowns. As an adult, I’ve come to know the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport very well in stopovers to visit my family. Suffice it to say, I am looking forward to this trip, and not just for the great government contracting programs.
Speaking of great programs, the National Seminar features an all-star lineup of sessions given by government and industry leaders. You can check out the program on the National Seminar on Government Contracts website. I hope to see you there!
