August Forum & BIPOC Business EXPO: Unveiling the Power of Government Contracting for Business Growth

Wednesday, August 16, 2023 (11:00 AM - 1:00 PM) (PDT)


You're invited to the Thurston Chamber's August forum featuring Tiffany Scroggs, Thurston EDC’s Washington PTAC Program Director, as the keynote speaker. The event will take place at the Olympia Hotel at Capital Lake, providing an excellent opportunity for local businesses to gain valuable insights into government contracting and its potential to fuel business growth.

Government contracting has emerged as a crucial avenue for businesses to expand their operations and establish long-term success. With extensive experience and expertise in the field, Tiffany Scroggs will offer attendees valuable knowledge on how government contracts can serve as a catalyst for growth and provide guidance on the initial steps required to enter this sector.

The event will include a BIPOC Business EXPO featuring members of South Sound BIPOC. SSBIPOC is an effort supported by the Chamber Foundation to provide visibility, education, and marketing opportunities to businesses owned or run by BIPOC community members.  Attendees will have the chance to connect with these exceptional entrepreneurs, discover innovative products and services, and support the growth of BIPOC-owned businesses. If you are a BIPOC owned business interested in showcasing your organization, please register using the button on the right of this page or contact Jessica at the Chamber to confirm your display space.
