On July 31, local businesses had the opportunity to connect with a representative from the Washington State Department of Enterprise Services during a Meet the Buyer workshop. It was the Regional Chamber's first event that was offered in both English and Spanish!
Meet the Buyer is a program of the Washington PTAC located at the Tri-City Regional Chamber that connects businesses with government agencies and prime contractors. The quarterly events, sponsored by Washington River Protection Solutions, are designed to educate businesses about what the agencies buy, how they buy, upcoming projects and more. These events are great networking opportunities as well.
Congratulations to our in-house PTAC Counselor, Maria Alleman, on facilitating her first Meet the Buyer event. Thanks to Washington River Protection Solutions for sponsoring the Meet the Buyer program.
