For decades, FWC has played a vital role as an Assist Agency with our public agency partners. Assist Agencies provide various business assistance, training, and outreach to existing or prospective business owners; particularly those in the M/W/D/VBE communities.
Working together with these public agencies as partners, we review existing and potential rules and ordinances to address the needs of advancing small business development and growth within the state and throughout the nation. This is one of the useful benefits of your FWC membership.
FWC Members - did you miss the October 8th program, Unconscious Bias and How if Affects Us? A recording of the program is available here.
