Leesburg, VA (July 20, 2018) – The Mason Enterprise Center in Leesburg will hold its next quarterly HUBZone Business Meeting on Monday, July 30, 2018, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., at the Mason Enterprise Center in downtown Leesburg (202 Church Street SE). The meeting is free and open to all small businesses. Lunch will be provided, sponsored by Dunlap, Bennett and Ludwig (www.dbllawyers.com). 

This quarter’s guest speaker is Anna Urman, Director of the Virginia Procurement Technical Assistance Program (Virginia PTAP). PTAP’s mission is to increase contracting activity between small businesses, prime government contractors, and federal and state government agencies.  As director, Anna’s responsibilities are to maintain strategic relationships with government agencies, small business liaisons, and public-private partnerships. Anna is a leading research analyst specializing in government procurement policy and market analysis. Prior to joining PTAP, she was the Director of the South Fairfax Small Business Development Center.  Anna holds a Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown University and performed post-graduate work in government contracts and intellectual property law at George Washington University.  

A program of the U.S. Small Business Administration, the HUBZone program helps small businesses gain preferential access to federal procurement opportunities while increasing employment opportunities in economically distressed areas. In an effort to assist local businesses with navigating the HUBZone certification process, the Mason Enterprise Center and Leesburg Economic Development Office have partnered with technical experts and local business owners who have completed the process successfully to present quarterly information sharing meetings.
