National Women Contractors' Week March 16-18, 2010

National Women Contractors' Week celebrates the contributions and growth of America’s proud women-owned small business contractors during Women’s History Month!

Washington, DC Celebration and Meetings: March 16 - 18, 2010 (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). Three full day sessions featuring the U.S. Army, Dept of Health and Human Services, awards, reports, meetings with Congressional leaders, and one-on-one meetings with federal agency and prime contractor contracting representatives.

Regional Celebrations and Awards: We are workng with regional leaders to establish local recognition/award ceremonies to advance the awareness of women-owned small business contractors and our contributions to government contracting all across the U.S.

The U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce is proud to honor the growth and achievements of women-owned contractors and lay the foundation for greater success and opportunity for the future.

The dramatic rise of American women in business is an economic movement that will be part of the proud history of United States entrepreneurialism for decades to come. As women’s businesses have grown, we have pushed the envelope seeking bigger and bigger market opportunities – including state and federal contracting. In FY2008, the federal government spent over $9B with women-owned small businesses – the largest single market opportunity for women-owned firms in the United States.

Over the last decade, women-owned firms have fought hard to gain significant advances in the federal marketplace working with federal agencies, prime contractors, and resource providers to secure opportunities and the tools and resources necessary to be successful.

To celebrate the powerful economic accomplishments of women-owned firms, and to shine the light every year on the impact of women contractors within the single largest market opportunity in America, the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce will hold an annual celebration of “National Women Contractors’ Week” in Washington, DC with concurrent celebrations across the United States.

This year's Washington, DC celebration will include full day opportunity spotlights with the U.S. Army and the Dept. of Health and Human Services, awards, reports, one-on-one meetings with federal agency and prime contractor representatives, and an opportunity for attendees to meet with their Congressional representatives to promote the furtherance of opportunities for women-owned small business contractors.
