Rogers-Lowell Chamber of Commerce to offer Arkansas Business Certification course
By becoming an Arkansas Certified Business, local businesses that fit one of those two ownership qualifications can increase their chances of getting businesses with government-funded agencies. A new seminar being offered Dec. 14 by the Rogers-Lowell Chamber of Commerce will guide business owners on how to earn that certification.
The FYI Educational Seminar will be 1-5 p.m. Dec. 14 at the Chamber’s offices, 317 W. Walnut St. in Rogers.
“Certification is now more important than ever since major corporations include supplier diversity as a core business strategy, and use certification as a tool to validate and seek qualified minority businesses,” according to a press release from the Chamber. “Certification is an important stamp of approval, showing that the business is a viable entity capable of meeting its commitments.”
According to the press release, Pat Brown and Karen Castle with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, Small and Minority Business Division, along with James Moore Section Head-EEO/DBE with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department will be on hand to guide participants through the certification steps.
This seminar is free and open to the public, but registration is required at www.RogersLowell.com. For more information, contact Vilma Dominguez, 619-3186.
