Start your fall off right by exploring how to successfully sell your writing services to the federal government.  Darlene Chuka, Supply Team Leader with the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME), will offer this special free seminar to PWAC Prairies and the North region members who are interested in learning about the procurement process and how to sell goods and services to the Government of Canada. Members, associate members, and student members are welcome to attend.

Each member will be able to log in at his or her computer terminal, at the specified date and time, in a flexible webinar-style setting.
