Protecting Your Certifications During Corporate Changes (LIVE WEBINAR)
Did you know that corporate changes can comprise your business certifications such as SDVOSB, WOSB, 8(a), WBE & DBE?
There are many federal, local government and private sector diversity certifications available to business owners that can help to maximize revenue sources. Because obtaining these certifications can be a monumental task, the last thing you want to do is compromise them. However, any corporate changes can do just that including partial sale ownership of interests, acquiring firms or in succession planning.
It is important to understand that any ownership change will trigger a possible certification suspension or de-certification, even if you believe that such ownership changes are insignificant.
Bring your questions to this interactive webinar to get the answers, information, and tools you need to protect your hard-won certifications. We will also discuss bids, business size, NAICS codes, joint ventures, mentor protégé and teaming agreements
