Rural Small Business Connection Event

In support of Secretary Vilsack’s implementation of President Obama’s agenda to put Americans back to work and create an economy built to last, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) will be hosting Rural Small Business Connections. These training events will provide small businesses with a series of educational networking sessions and opportunities on how to build capacity and successfully do business with USDA and other Federal agencies.

The Rural Small Business Connections is designed to provide small businesses and small farmer-owned cooperatives with the exposure and insight to increase small business contracting participation with the Federal government. Conference attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a full day of learning discussions led by program and small business procurement officials from USDA, and other Federal agencies.

The latest Rural Small Business Connections was held on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 on the campus of Middle Georgia State College in Macon, Georgia. The event was attended by nearly 100 participants interested in learning more about USDA programs and procurement activities.
