Celebrate National PTAC Day with Us

by Melanie Berman - August 30, 2018

PTAC Day is a national campaign designed to celebrate the contracting success of thousands of small businesses that have benefited from training and technical assistance delivered by their local procurement technical assistance centers (PTACs). The first ever National PTAC Day will take place Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018.

National PTAC Day will unite the 95 Procurement Technical Assistance Centers in all 50 states (plus Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands) and the 48,000 clients they serve by sharing small business success stories and the significant economic impact PTAC clients have created within their communities.

This special day will be celebrated with social media campaigns, public relations initiatives, online and in-person events and more.
