Representatives from the office of Economic and Business Equity for Gov. John Kitzhaber will bring the Marketplace Roadshow to The Dalles Sept. 18. The event is being hosted in partnership with the Columbia Gorge Small Business Development Center from 3 to 7:30 p.m. at Columbia Gorge Community College.
The roadshow is travelling to cities throughout the state providing opportunities for local small businesses to meet directly with procurement professionals from state, federal, private and non-profit organizations who will share tips, tools, resources and strategies to aid in the growth of family-wage jobs.
An update of Kitzhaber’s priorities, including programs to provide immediate contracting opportunities, will also be shared.
For more information call the Small Business Development Center at 541-506-6121.
