Business Inclusion & Advancement - March 14, 2019
The city is offering a free workshop Thursday, March 21, to assist minority and women-owned businesses with certifying or re-certifying as historically underutilized businesses with the state of North Carolina.
The workshop will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Suite 150 of the Joycelyn V. Johnson Municipal Services Center, 2000 Lowery St., Winston-Salem. Pre-registration is requested by March 20 by contacting Hasani Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-747-7459.
Certification with the state HUB office provides businesses with greater exposure to business opportunities in state procurement and contracting. All HUB-certified businesses are listed in the Vendor Link system, which is widely used by state agencies, universities, community colleges, local schools, local governments and institutions and the public to locate historically underutilized businesses for goods, services and construction. HUB Certification is free and valid for four years.
