GCA's 2nd Small Business Connection Series Event of 2019
Are you a single contractor looking for the perfect contract?
Are you tired of reaching out to contracting officers and getting no response?
Have you tried looking for contracts online only to find yourself swiping aimlessly?
Do you wish you could meet with several agencies all in one place?
Join Government Contractors Association (GCA) as we host: Getting to “Second-Base” with Primes and Agencies.
During this Matchmaking event, attendees will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with various agencies and prime contractors in a speed dating type setting. Stay tuned for an announcement of all of the eligible agencies and primes who are looking for single contractors just like you.
When: Thursday, May 23, 2019
Time: 9AM – 1PM
To help you “score” during your speed date, GCA is hosting 3 training sessions to prepare you for your dates. These “makeover” sessions are not mandatory but are highly encouraged to give you the best opportunity to land your perfect contract.
The “Makeover” Sessions:
- May 8 – Online Dating Do’s and Don’ts – How to find upcoming opportunities at the agencies with whom you will meet
- May 15 – Perfect your Pickup Lines – How to conduct an introductory meeting with agencies and primes
- May 22 – Finding Closure – How to conduct a debrief with agencies if you don’t land the contract
