Women-Owned Business Certifications: Making Sense of the new WOSB/EDWOSB Requirements
August 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join the Maryland Women’s Business Center, Women’s Business Center at Community Business Partnership, and Virginia Procurement Technical Assistance Center for a colalborative webinar deciphering the new Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) certification requirements.
Recently the SBA changed the process for qualifying for WOSB and EDWOSB. There is a lot of misinformation and lack of clarity about these changes that may impact your status as a WOSB/EDWOSB. This webinar will clear up some of the confusion and help guide you on how to become a certified WOSB/EDWOSB. Some topics covered will be:
- How do I use 3rd party certification?
- Where do I apply for certification?
- What are the important deadlines for certification?
- How long am I self certified?
