Interactive “Webinars” on navigating the maze of federal contracting and other business essentials will be conducted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Strategic & Learning Services, Inc., a small business based in Albuquerque, N.M.
The training sessions will be held on May 17, July 19, Aug. 16 and Sept. 13. The series is for small-business owners who are eligible for the SBA’s 7(j) Management and Technical Assistance programs. Other firms can participate if they are eligible for 8(a) certification, are HUBZone-certified, are located in areas of high unemployment or low income, or are owned by low-income people.
During the sessions, small businesses can e-mail their questions directly to the instructors and receive immediate responses. The seminars will highlight techniques to analyze your business, assess your growth potential, explore strategies to obtain and manage government contracts, how to retain and manage employees, how to enhance your business, and how to develop a plan for strategic growth.
