Kissell urges Stanly small businesses to register for contracting symposium

Tuesday, October 23, 2012 — U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell (NC-08) urged Stanly County small businesses to register today for the 4th Annual Federal Contracting Symposium on Oct. 24 at the Stanly County Agri-Civic Center in Albemarle. The district-wide event is designed to help North Carolina businesses gain a better understanding of opportunities in contracting and procurement with the federal government. The event is free and pre-registration is open now.

Richfield’s B.R.S. Inc., Locust Concrete and Products and Albemarle’s S4 Risk Inc.. Xervant Cyber Security and Janitorial Services & More are among the Stanly County businesses that have already registered to attend. More than 200 area businesses have already pre-registered for the event.

“I’m committed to providing our local businesses with every opportunity for success,” Kissell said.

“This free event will help to link up Stanly County business owners directly with federal agencies, helping provide them with an in-depth look at the opportunities and channels within the federal contracting process. Bringing our business leaders together with government procurement officials serves as a fantastic resource hub which is evident by the success of our last three events. I look forward to showing off to the federal procurement folks some of the best and most innovative businesses anywhere in the country — those right here at home.”

The Contracting Sympo-sium is being organized in partnership with the North Carolina Military Business Center, Stanly County Agri-Civic Center, North Carolina Small Business and Technology Develop-ment Center, Stanly Com-munity College, Stanly County Economic Develop-ment Commission and the Stanly County Chamber of Commerce.

“I want to thank our partners for helping make this available to our local businesses,” Kissell said.

“I want to ensure that our hardworking people are given every opportunity to bid on federal procurement. I encourage all businesses throughout our area to take part in this important opportunity.”

The daylong, free event will include a federal contracting workshop series, as well as a resource fair for businesses interested in becoming engaged in the federal process. Agency participants will include contracting offices and agencies providing technical assistance in government procurement, including the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Department of Interior Fish and Wildlife Services, U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Special Operations Command, Marine Corps Installations East, Army Corps of Engineers, North Carolina National Guard, Department of Treasury and many more. Representatives from the contracting offices of Ft. Bragg and Camp Lejeune will also be on hand to meet with area businesses. Pre-registration is required.
