This year’s SAME Joint Industry Days and Federal Agency Forum (JIDFAF) will be hosted by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Chicago and Lake Michigan Posts and will be held, April 9th and 10th in Northbrook, IL.
This is a day and one half business development event focusing on providing small businesses the tools, information and resources needed to enter or increase their government book of business. The event is designed to bring together Federal Agency staff, Prime contractors and small businesses for networking, education, round-table exchanges and updates during the Federal Agency Forum.
Technical training will be provided on a variety of topics and issues faced by both Federal contractors and subcontractors. Resource providers will also be available to assist small businesses on a wide range of topics from certifications, to contract issues and JV agreements.
In addition to networking both before and after sessions and during formal breaks, attendees will have access to a number of private and public entities who host booths in the exhibit room.
Take time to visit each booth, participate in the roundtable sessions and introduce yourself to the participants. You may identify a business opportunity, meet a prospective partner or identify a previously unknown source of technical information. Challenge yourself to meet with all of these participants and to determine how they may support your business strategy. Finally, recognize that it is not only important to Get Connected it is vital to Stay Connected.
