“We must out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the rest of the world.”
President Obama said it best, and the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference (CBC-ALC) will address the most urgent, complex, and challenging policy issues facing our nation, of which one is supporting small and innovative businesses. I am committed to fostering business partnerships between the Federal Government and the private sector, and it brings me great pleasure to invite you to participate as a vendor or small business owner during my braintrust: Meet/Match-Minority Suppliers Doing Business with the Public and Private Sector during the 46th Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference (CBC/ALC).
Public and private sector vendors and small business owners can register at:http://www.cbcfinc.org/MeetMatch_ALC16
The Meet/Match procurement event will provide many small, minority, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, HUBZone, and women-owned businesses a great opportunity to market their products and services to public and private procurement officers and contract managers. Minority vendors and suppliers will also learn how their products and services can be competitive in both domestic and international markets.
The Meet/Match vendor outreach session will be held on Friday, September 16th, 2016 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, in Room 146 A & B, in Washington, DC.
I look forward to your participation in the 46th Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference. To indicate your interest in participating in the session register at the above link or contact Abiola Afolayan, Esq. at email@example.com.
Very truly yours,
Sheila Jackson Lee
Member of Congress
