Do you have a small business and want to do business with USDA?  If so, you need to consider attending an upcoming event in Louisiana.

In support of the Obama Administration’s efforts to put Americans back to work and create an economy built to last, the USDA Office of Small Disadvantaged Business Utilization will host Rural Small Business Connections, a training event to provide small businesses with educational networking sessions and opportunities on how to successfully do business with the Agriculture Department and other Federal agencies.

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 event will be held on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Best Western Inn, Suites & Conference Center, in Alexandria, Louisiana.

There is no fee to participate, however, pre-registration is preferred, with onsite registration available.  Registration will open July 25, 2014. For further information, visit our website at or call 202-720-7117.
