I am on my way home from Denver, where I have been since Tuesday for the Association of Procurement Assistance Centers Spring Conference. My talk today was the final presentation of the conference (I like to think that APTAC saves the best for last!) and focused on recent SBA proposals regarding the limitations on subcontracting, “universal” mentor-protege, and women-owned small businesses, among other topics.
It was great to see so many familiar faces and have the chance to talk to so many PTAC counselors. Thank you to Becky Peterson, Jason Porch, and the APTAC leadership for inviting me to speak, and thank you to all the PTAC-ers who stayed until the end of the conference to catch my presentation. As always, you were a fantastic audience.
If you are a small business, you may be surprised at the many ways that your local PTAC can help you–usually free of charge. Visit the APTAC website to get started.
