NEWS: More Moore

Dennis Moore (D-Kan.) sent a message promoting his Government Procurement Conference at JCCC. Moore served on the college's Board of Trustees from 1993 - 1998.

On Wednesday, March 26, 2008, I will be hosting a Government Procurement Conference at Johnson County Community College. This one-day event will offer businesspeople an affordable way to learn more about marketing their products and services to local, state and federal governments. Registration for attendees and exhibitors is now open.

The conference will feature the Honorable Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of Kansas, as keynote speaker; and luncheon speaker Col. Tim Weatherbee, Fort Leavenworth. Additionally, exhibitors will be on hand to provide face-to-face contacts with government agencies and breakout sessions will provide detailed information on how to compete for all types of government contracts.

The Third District is home to many small businesses, so we must work together to make sure that businesses in this area receive their fair share of federal dollars. This conference, which is modeled after Congressman Ike Skelton's very successful annual conference, will give small businesses in the Third District the information and contacts they need to compete for federal contracts.
