Q: What else is on tap for the summit?

A: We're bringing in industry experts on strategic sourcing and bonding for small and emerging contractors. Strategic sourcing is a trend that has the potential to displace a number of small businesses and bonding issues have kept small contractors from growing into the prime contracting area.

Q: Does it cost? Where can interested small business get more information?

A: Interested businesses may register at region6roundtable.com or call 455-3800. The meeting will be held March 26-28 at the Marriott Hotel, 3233 Northwest Expressway. Sponsors include Procurement Technical Assistance Centers; Minority Business Development Agency; Native American & Alaska Native Business Program; LSI-Wins SBA Pilot Program; and Federal Allies Institute of Washington, D.C.
