Local Entrepreneurs Attend Chamber Workshop to Learn How to Obtain Governmental Contracts

Local Entrepreneurs Attend Chamber Workshop to Learn How to Obtain Governmental Contracts

ORANGE CITY, Fla. – The Chamber of Commerce West Volusia recently was the site of a workshop for business owners interested in obtaining governmental contracts.


The session – titled “Doing Business with Federal and Local Governments” – was sponsored by The Center for Business Excellence, and presented by The Small Business Development Center of Daytona State College. It was held at the chamber’s Business Learning Center in Orange City.


Speakers were Rick Fraser, president of the Center for Business Excellence; Ned Harper, SBDC director at Daytona State College; and Linda White and John Wanamaker, chamber president/CEO, and treasurer/corporate secretary, respectively.


About 20 local business owners attended the workshop, including Mike Chinelli, an Orange City-based contractor.


“The class offered good direction on how to obtain contracts,” Chinelli said. “And, that should be important with the stimulus package creating a lot of government work."


Wanamaker, broker for Coldwell Banker Commercial AI Group in Orange City, has attended similar classes in other counties, but said this session was a first for the West Volusia area.


“There are other cities and counties that sponsor classes like this for local businesses,” he said. “We’re hopeful that this will catch on here and we’ll see more local governmental agencies sponsoring educational classes for our business owners.”
