2019 Veteran’s Summit For Those Who Served

November 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Veteran owned businesses are an integral part of our supplier diversity program like minority- owned (MBE, women-owned (WBE), HubZone, and LGBTQ business enterprises.

The goal of the Veteran’s Summit, “For Those Who Served” is to provide the veteran business owners with an experience to enhance business practices through interactive workshops and a Match Maker activity that is designed to bring regional institutions, municipalities and state and federal government entities together in one venue to meet with veteran business enterprises (VBE) and service-disabled veteran enterprises (SDVBEs) for procurement opportunities.

On Friday, November 8, 2019, Metropolitan Community College and the Veteran’s Summit Planning Committee will host the 4th Annual Outreach Business Forum “For Those Who Served” at MCC-Penn Valley, 3201 Southwest Trafficway, Kansas City, Missouri, and Education Center PVEC0019.

We cordially invite you to participate in the Match Maker event. The Match Maker runs from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. U.S. Veterans will have an opportunity to sign up for 10-minute sessions to speak with representatives from several organizations regarding upcoming RFP/Procurement Opportunities. These men and women who have served our country would welcome an opportunity to visit with you.
