I am back in Lawrence after two fantastic trips to the West Coast, in very rapid succession.
Last Thursday, I was in Puyallup, Washington for the annual Alliance Northwest conference. As always, the conference was one of the best events of its type nationwide. Thank you to Tiffany Scroggs and her colleagues at the Washington PTAC for sponsoring this great event and inviting me to participate. If you missed Alliance Northwest (and my presentation on the SBA’s All Small Mentor-Protege Program), the presentations are all posted on the conference website. Check it out, and circle your calendar for next year’s Alliance NW.
Yesterday, I was in Las Vegas for the National Reservation Economic Summit conference. It was my first time at National RES, and I was very impressed with this outstanding event. If it weren’t for a very lengthy to-do list back here at the office, I’d happily be enjoying the remaining days of the conference. A big “thank you” to the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development for sponsoring National RES and inviting me to speak.
After logging quite a few frequent flyer miles, I’m happy to be closer to home for the next several weeks. But just because I’ll be in Kansas doesn’t mean that I won’t be engaging in one of my favorite pastimes: speaking at length about government contracting legal issues. Join me on Thursday for “Obtaining and Maintaining the SBA’s HUBZone Certification,” an online seminar sponsored by my good friends at GOVOLOGY.
