It’s Networking Time again!

The San Diego Chapter of the Elite SDVOB Network would like to invite you to our next meeting on April 4, 2017.  We meet at the Veterans Museum on 2115 Park Blvd., across from Balboa Park.  Meeting time is from 9 AM – 10:30 AM.
Our mission statement is Helping Other “Vets” Help Themselves.  We assist Service Disabled Veterans with networking and opening doors to new business with government and corporate America.  Come and join us and see what’s new and what is on-going for service-disabled veterans so far in 2017.  
Our April speaker will be the local representative from the Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) to our local SANDAG organization, Ingrid Lopes.  As Contract Specialist, one part of Ms. Lopes’ role is to outreach to the small business community and educate them to how to do business with MTS.  As the following list shows, the MTS has a lot of upcoming contracts with something for everyone.  Come, hear and meet with Ms. Lopes to see how you might be able to land a contract with MTS.
Also at the meeting, a slate will be presented for the election of next year’s Board of Directors.
The California Department of General Services has posted an Early Participation Opportunity: Upcoming 2017 Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise (DVBE) Rule Revisions.  If you are interested in submitting comments, they must be received by DGS by April 21, 2017.  Details will be available at the meeting. 
Come to the meeting and introduce yourself and your company.  There may be an opportunity waiting for you.  This is what networking is all about!
