Workshops to assist bond-ready emerging businesses
New and emerging local small, micro and M/WBE businesses and contractors interested in becoming bond ready can sign up for the Model Contractor Development Program workshops – once a week for eight-weeks beginning Thursday, September 3, 2015 – presented by Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ Office of Economic Opportunity in partnership with the Surety & Fidelity Association of America.
The all-inclusive workshops will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the School Board Administration Building, located at 1450 N.E. Second Ave. The workshops will touch on different topics each week, such as business planning, estimating and bidding. Participants also will receive technical assistance to complete a bond application and one-on-one sessions with local professionals.
The Model Contractor Development Program is one of the 12 agreed upon solutions, between M-DCPS and the NAACP, Urban League and BAC Funding, to assist local businesses.
