Learning Objectives:
Join NCMA Jacksonville for a panel discussion celebrating the multiple contributions of women to the contract management profession!

• Over 9.9 million US businesses (36%) are woman owned, generating over $1.4 trillion annually.
• Woman-owned businesses are found in virtually every supply, services, and construction industry.
• Every Small Business Administration preference program: (8(a), service disabled veteran, etc. is available to woman-owned businesses.
• Despite the SBA's best efforts, obstacles continue for woman-owned businesses of all types.

Six women operating businesses in the Jacksonville area will present their professional backgrounds, motivation for wanting to run their own business, the challenges they had to overcome, sources of help, and their successes. Three panelists have operated woman-owned small businesses for many years; the other three are relative newcomers. Three are African-American, two are Caucasian, and one is Hispanic-American.

Moderator: Mike Scuteri, LTC, USA, Retired Crowley Logistics Inc. Audience questions will follow the panel.
