Name: Small & Mid-Sized Business Committee
Date: October 16, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
Event Description:
Long Island Association in Partnership with Governor Andrew Cuomo
New York State Minority- and Women-Owned Business (MWBE) Forum

In 2014, Governor Andrew Cuomo set a goal to provide 30 percent of state contract dollars to minority- and women-owned enterprises. The MWBE program is designed to increase economic opportunity, boost job creation and fuel innovation.
Last year, the LIA Small and Mid-Sized Business Committee hosted a forum to support the expansion of opportunities for MWBEs on Long Island and train companies interested in certification. We will reconvene to assist small businesses with navigating the state’s contract opportunities, including transportation, construction and information technology, as well as financial and professional services.

There will also be a question and answer session.

The LIA Small and Mid-Sized Business Committee is co-chaired by Katherine Heaviside, President of Epoch 5 Public Relations, and Ernie Canadeo, President of The EGC Group, Inc. It is vice-chaired by Crisler Quick, President of The Finance Department. The Small and Mid-Sized Business Committee advances positions that support the great majority of Long Island's business community; our small and mid-sized businesses.
