8(a) Certification: How to Get the Competitive Edge
October 9, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
To help provide a level playing field for small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people, the government limits competition for certain contracts to 8(a) certified companies. Before applying to the 8(a) program, there is a large amount of preparation and planning in order to be successful. For this workshop, there are two speakers.
Our PTAC Specialist will begin the session with a guide on the 8(a) qualifications, paperwork, and process. The second speaker, Wilbert Johnson, who is an 8(a) participant, will draw upon his 10+ business experience and talk about the strategies on making the most of this opportunity.
Guest Speaker: Wilbert Johnson, a U.S. Army veteran, is President of Cetechs located in Mesa, Arizona. The founder’s vision was to become a trusted and reliable leader for providing cutting edge workforce and staffing solutions. His mission is to provide high-quality service and support while solving and truly listening to the client’s needs. Cetechs was recently ranked by Inc. Magazine as #266 out of 5,000 of the fast-growing companies in the United States.
