Two and a half years have passed since the implementation of the WOSB-EDWOSB Women’s Procurement Program.  Even with this program in place, the Federal Government continues to miss its paltry 5% goal for contracts with women-owned firms.

Join us for the 2013 WOSB National Council Fall Conference as we work strategically to ensure our fair share of Federal Contracts.  This day includes Business Growth Strategies, Step Up Women and Lead and On The Hill.  Join us as we make our voices heard!
