The Greater Ogdensburg Chamber of Commerce is pleased to sponsor a special workshop for veteran entrepreneurs who would like to learn more information on becoming NYS certified as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOB). This free workshop will be held on Thursday, July 26th from 10 am to 12 pm at the Dobisky Visitor’s Center in Ogdensburg. Are you a veteran entrepreneur? All NYS Agencies and authorities have a 6% goal for companies that have their NYS certification as a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOB). Ken Williams, the Executive Director of the Division of Service-Disabled Veterans’ Business Development will discuss the details of the NYS SDVOB program, including certification requirements, contract opportunities, FAQs, and the benefits of certification. NYS opened a new division of the Office of General Services several years ago for the purpose of certifying veteran owned businesses. Being certified with NYS will open up new opportunities for veterans to do business with NYS agencies and help expand their businesses.
