COVID-19 UPDATE. Due to the North Carolina Governor’s declaration of a public health emergency, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Interim Guidance for COVID-19, travel restrictions and social distancing measures in place, the NCMBC and our co-hosts have made the difficult decision to cancel our Defense Contractor Academies for 2020. Given our goal of offering a valuable and informative Academy for all in attendance, we have decided it is best to postpone.
The Defense Contractor Academy hosted by the North Carolina Military Business Center, North Carolina State University Industrial Expansion Solutions, Cape Fear Community College and Central Piedmont Community College, will offer an intermediate-level of instruction and a certificate of completion to existing, small business defense contractors to provide the tools needed to grow the federal portion of their business portfolio.
“The Defense Contractor Academy provides the advanced skills businesses need in federal business development, competitive processes and federal contracting procedures to grow in the federal marketplace – and to grow jobs in North Carolina,” – Scott Dorney, Executive Director of the NCMBC.
A series of classes will be offered in Wilmington (early 2021) and in Charlotte (late 2021), beginning at 0800 and ending at 1630 each day. Each Academy day will include presentation of material and either a panel or guest business(es) to discuss their experiences regarding the topic of the session.
Cost. All three days of instructions, including materials, catering (sodas, water and light breakfast and lunches) are included in the $175 registration fee, per person.
Registration. Registration is not yet available.
Day 1. Start time: 0800. End time: 1630.
