WOSB National Council Summer Conference

27-Jul-2011 Reston, VA – The members of the WOSB National Council met on 26-27-July-2011 and Marilyn Ehrhardt, CEO of Sabianet, was in attendance. The Council discussions brought to light many issues with the way Federal Contracts are awarded to Small Woman-owned Businesses and the barriers to entry that exist today in the Government that prevent Women-led business to participate in Federal business. "If the US Government puts in place the mechanisms that allow small businesses to grow then the economy will turn around," stated Marilyn Ehrhardt, "and we, woman-owned businesses, need access to capital and access to Federal contracts without the cumbersome barriers and processes that exist today." She met with Ms. Tracey L. Pinson, Director of Small Business Utilization, Office of the Secretary of the Army and Margot Dorfman, CEO, US Women's Chamber of Commerce (USWCC).

Sabianet has joined with other women-owned small businesses and will support the objectives of the WOSB National Council™.
