SBA Alabama District Office and the South Region Minority Supplier Development Council to Conduct Joint Seminar

Seminar will include an introduction to 8(a) government contracting and SRMSDC certification orientation. 

BIRMINGHAM – The South Region Minority Supplier Development Council (SRMSDC) is joining with the U.S. Small Business Administration Alabama District Office to offer a comprehensive orientation experience to new Minority and Small Business Enterprises. They are working together to create a one stop orientation shop for small businesses who are interested in completing Minority Certification and an introduction to Government 8(a) Contracting. The seminar will be an on-going monthly service on the first Tuesday of each month.

The seminar will consist of a morning session devoted to supplier certification with the SRMSDC and an afternoon session devoted to an introduction to SBA 8(a) government contracting. The combined seminar is a result of the recent Strategic Alliance Memorandum signed by SBA and SRMSDC. The SRMSDC orientation will run from 10:00 am until 11:30 am. There will be a break for lunch and the seminar will resume with SBA 8(a) contracting at 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm. There is no charge for the seminar. Pre-registration is not required.

Anyone interested in business certification for minority, women-owned and veteran-owned businesses and in selling to the government is encouraged to attend.
