Many firms get lost in the "alphabet soup" of certifications: DBE, WBE, MBE, 8(a), SEBD . . . This seminar focuses on why (or why not) certification as a minority, woman-owned, or disadvantaged business may be beneficial to your company. The Do's and Don't's of certification are provided in "plain English" to help the small business owner decide which certification is right for his or her business. Then, get prepared for the certification process: learn about the various certification types as well as how and where to apply. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions about the processes, benefits, and documentation required for certification. Speaker(s): Erik Waters, Business Consultant Co-Sponsor(s): St. John the Baptist Economic Development
