Lipinski Invites Local Businesses to Learn More about Doing Business with the Federal Government on Dec. 12 in Summit

On Monday, Dec. 12, Congressman Dan Lipinski will provide Third District businesses with an opportunity to learn more about how they can become suppliers of goods and services to the federal government. Businesses can also learn about ways the government can help them grow through export promotion and other assistance. 

“I’m very pleased to offer local businesses this chance to talk directly with federal agencies about how they can compete for government contracts and tap into the assistance that is available to them,” Rep. Lipinski said. “This is an extremely tough economic environment for small businesses, and I want to do everything I can to help them compete, grow, and create the jobs we need. In October, I held a Jobs Fair that brought together dozens of employers and hundreds of jobseekers, and since then I’ve heard from a number of people who obtained jobs as a result. This event is another way that I’m working to promote job growth and economic opportunity for my constituents.”

The event, “Doing Business with the Federal Government,” will be held Monday, Dec. 12, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Summit, 6050 S. Harlem Ave., Summit, IL.

Businesses can meet directly with representatives from a variety of federal agencies, including: the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Commerce (Economic Development Administration, International Trade Administration, and CommerceConnect), the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Department of Defense, the General Services Administration, the Small Business Administration, the Federal Aviation Administration, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and others.

Please contact Congressman Lipinski's Chicago office at 312-886-0481 for more information or to RSVP.
