Local corps attends contracting conference

Apr. 03, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- The Huntington District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers participated in the Dynamic Networking for Small Business: A Federal and Prime Government Contracting event, also called DyNet for short.

The regional conference took place March 27 in Fairmont, W.Va., and more than 200 business representatives attended to learn more about the federal contracting process and upcoming federal contract opportunities.

Lt. Col. William Reding, the Huntington District's deputy commander, provided opening remarks, expressing his belief that "small business is probably the most important aspect of our economy," according to a press release. "What you do each day and the things that you develop and support in other industries are really the catalyst for what we do in developing our economy."

Several workshops on a variety of topics were offered. The Huntington District's Shreda Gorum covered safety; Brandon Moore covered operations and maintenance; Sean Carter covered geotechnical and water resources engineering; and Brandon Lewis covered contracting.
