Capital District Chapter of NAWIC to Host 4th Annual MWBE Showcase
On Tuesday, March 19, 2019, the Capital District Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) hosts its Annual WBE Showcase at The Century House in Latham, N.Y. This event provides New York State Minority and Women Business Enterprises (MWBE) an opportunity to showcase their business to local contractors and state agencies. Last year we had over 175 attendees and 30 booths.
Following Governor Cuomo's 2014 mandate to increase statewide MWBE utilization goals to thirty percent (30%) for all state contracts, it is crucial for businesses that are at least fifty-one percent (51%) owned, operated and controlled by women or minorities to get certified and market themselves as certified businesses. The annual showcase will create an avenue for MWBE's to not only market themselves to representatives from state agencies, architects, subcontractors, owners, developers and engineers, but also give them a chance to network with other NYS MWBE's.
Additionally, we are currently seeking General Contractors, Architects and Engineers to attend to meet these State Agencies and NYS certified MWBE’s!
NEW THIS YEAR STATE AGENCY POP UP PRESENTATIONS! Throughout the night different state agencies will be speaking in a special area in the back of the room. This is good opportunity to meet state representatives that will help you do business with the State.
