November 13, 2017 by Suzanne Brown

Clayton County Water Authority (CCWA) is offering small local businesses the chance to network and learn more about CCWA procurement opportunities during its second annual Small Local Business Enterprise Business Mixer on November 16 from 6 – 8 p.m.

The mixer will be held at CCWA’s Marie Barber Community Use Room at 1600 Battle Creek Road in Morrow for small businesses to network with CCWA’s existing vendors, leadership, staff, and other local small businesses.
According to Mike Thomas, CCWA general manager, the event is hosted annually for small businesses to network with CCWA’s existing vendors, leadership, staff, and other local small businesses.

“We are excited to host this annual event as the participation and awareness of our SLBE Program continues to grow,” Thomas added.

The event also provides guests an opportunity to learn more about the goods and services CCWA purchases; a forum for small businesses to meet and form relationships with larger firms, preparing both entities for future opportunities to do business together and a casual setting for large businesses to meet qualified, small local businesses that can potentially add value to teams as a certified SLBE. Clayton County Central Services will also have staff on hand for networking and to provide information about the county’s SLBE program.

Participants must register for the mixer. To register, email ccwa_slbe_program@ccwa.us, visit CCWA’s web site, www.ccwa.us, to register online or call 770.960.5880.

CCWA’s Small Local Business Program is open to small firms locally based inside Clayton County or locally based in Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Rockdale and Spalding. CCWA’s SLBE Program provides an additional race and gender neutral tool for the Authority to use in its efforts to ensure that all segments of the local business community have a reasonable and significant opportunity to participate in CCWA contracting.
