Goal is to provide small businesses with job & business opportunities

On Monday, May 3, U.S. Senator Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD) will sponsor a Small Business Opportunity Fair for Maryland businesses. Hundreds of Maryland small business owners are expected to attend the Fair, which will include workshops on contracting with the federal government, BRAC opportunities, green business opportunities and access to capital. Senator Cardin is a member of the Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee and has made helping small businesses during the recession a top priority.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Chairman of the Governor’s Subcabinet on BRAC, will be the featured speaker for the BRAC Opportunities panel.
