Additional Information

New growth opportunities are available to local businesses large and small through working with the government. To explore the possibilities, join the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce for Selling your Products or Services to the Government in the Mott Board Room in downtown Flint.

Dustin Frigy, Director of PTAC for the Regional Chamber says businesses should consider learning how government contracting can increase growth and diversification.

“Working with the government can open new doors,” said Frigy. “There are many ways that businesses of all sizes can work with local, state and federal government departments. That’s why this seminar is so important. It provides the information needed to successfully navigate the government maze and reveals exactly what they are looking for from contractors. Join us on October 3 and we will show you how to grow your business.”

Attendees also will learn about the services and support the Regional Chamber PTAC has available to help with the contracting process. The workshop will benefit management and employees who currently support or have an interest in facilitating government contracting within their companies.
