Understanding the HUBZone Program


 Online Meeting (Live)
 A Virginia PTAC Organized or Sponsored event, Contract Management, Government Contracting, HUBZones, Intermediate Level, Introductory Level, Market Research and Business Development, Marketing/Sales, Risk Management, Selling to Government, Set Aside Certifications and Designations

As a small business, it is important for you to understand current requirements of the HUBZone Program and who is eligible to obtain certification, according to regulations in the Title 13 CFR, and FAR Subpart 1913.

This class is a review and explanation of said requirements so that if your business is eligible then you can use this knowledge to obtain your fair share of contracting opportunities.

Instructor Lisa Powell worked for the U.S. Small Business Administration at the Connecticut District Office from 1998 to 2019 as an Economic Development Specialist monitoring the HUBZone and 8(a) portfolios for the local office before joining the Virginia PTAC as a Procurement Counselor in 2021. During her time at the SBA, Lisa worked closely with all of SBA’s resource partners to facilitate procurement workshops held at local Community Colleges, Chambers of Commerce and libraries. As a Business Opportunity Specialist, she was involved with the Government Contracting programs that the SBA provides and worked very closely with the purchasing agents for the Federal and State Agencies as well as the larger prime contractors while organizing SBA Matchmakers and assisting small business.
