Small businesses can connect with specialists

Posted: Wednesday, 22 May 2013

TROY – Troy University's Small Business Development Center and the Alabama Procurement Technical Assistance Center will offer a free seminar to small businesses wanting to do business with the federal government.

“Working with a Small Business Specialist" will be from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. Tuesday, June 4 at the Soldier Service Center, Room 282, Building 5700 at Fort Rucker. The center is located on Novosel Street. The seminar presenter is Fort Rucker's small business specialist Michael Faire.

Each federal agency has a small business program and many have a small business specialist who serves as a liaison between the agency and the small businesses that want to sell to them, said Judy Callin, a senior consultant with the TROY SBDC.

“Selling to the federal government can be a complicated and frustrating process, but working with a specialist can help simplify it. This program is designed to help area small businesses learn to navigate that system," she said.

Registration for the event is online at, or contact Callin at 334-674-2425.
