The San Diego Procurement Technical Assistance Center (SDCOC/PTAC) celebrated the 1st Annual National PTAC Day last week on September 26th.  National PTAC Day united the ninety-five Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) nationwide and the 48,000 clients they serve by sharing, in real time, small business success stories and the significant economic impact that PTAC clients have created within their communities. This special day was celebrated with social media campaigns, public relations initiatives, online and in-person events and more.

Locally, the San Diego PTAC (our program) celebrated the 1st annual National PTAC Day by hosting a panel discussion and networking event titled Marketing Your Business Effectively to the Government.  Just under 100 attendees participated in the event held at the National City Higher Education Center. Opening remarks were made by Senator Ben Hueso and District Director Janine Pairis Bryant from the Office of Congressman Juan Vargas.  Senator Hueso also presented the San Diego PTAC with a California State Senate Resolution recognizing the Center for our distinguished record of public service, economic impact, and immeasurable contributions to the advancement of small businesses in California.
