What Works News U Can Use Newsletter - March 2024

The month of February came in fast and furious. Now in the history books, with our continued declaration to Black History EVERYDAY – we usher in, like a roaring lion, the month of March. Globally, we are preparing to bring you our celebration of women around the world.  These women have been selected by our team to share their experiences, and purpose-driven passion that guides their leadership and accomplishments.  Before we leave the month of February to leap into March, we want to continue to applaud the National 8(a) Conference held in Atlanta, as the conference ignited a 2024 alarm that all of Government on behalf of industry is working on The Urgency of Now!

This Newsletter edition reflects on these commitments to advance critical Executive Orders like 13985 and 14008, and the Small Business Act, and the MBDA Act.  These policies and mandates will literally propel our small business community to a level of knowledge and insight as to why capacity building and scaling at the speed of digitalization becomes so crucial to capturing Federal contract and grant awards.  At the launch of this edition of What Works News U Can Use there are 208 days remaining for contractors to provide solutions to the Government before the end of the Fiscal Year.
