The American Small Business Coalition presence expands through a new alliance with the premier federal contracting advocate for Native American, Alaskan Native and Native Hawaiian entities around the nation. NACA’s newest Orca Corporate Partner debuted today at its annual conference in San Diego with a message focused on achieving greater opportunities and growth in an increasingly challenging federal marketplace.
That would be the motto shared by Michael Anderson, Executive Director of the Native American Contractors Association and Guy Timberlake, Chief Visionary and CEO of The American Small Business Coalition who just put together a partnership that will bring The ASBC’s education and training expertise to NACA members, and increased potential for partner synergies to members of The ASBC and NACA.
They both see it as the natural evolution of the professional and personal relationship started several years ago.
Which is why NACA’s executive director thinks it’s a big deal and a big win for both organizations. “Prior to leading NACA, I was a federal contractor benefiting from membership in The American Small Business Coalition.” says Anderson. “I participated in workshops led by Guy such as Ethical Stalking for Government Contractors™ which increased my situational awareness for finding and using competitive intelligence and helped me provide my company with more relevant visibility of current and prospective customers, our competitors and opportunities. That’s exactly the kind of results-based insight I want to bring to the table for NACA members.”
When asked about it Timberlake said, “Maggie and I are excited about this partnership because of the opportunity to work with Mike and to work on the development of partnerships between our respective members. One of our goals is to help members of NACA and The ASBC to pursue and win federal sector opportunities that might not currently be on their radar for one reason or another.”
The partnership was formally announced today at NACA’s annual conference in San Diego. Also announced was a webinar series facilitated by The American Small Business Coalition and its partners and hosted by NACA for its members. Topics will focus on business development, capture management, marketing, proposal writing, proposal management and more. NACA is sending an email to its members with details of webinars already scheduled through March of 2016. The partnership will also include industry news and information brought to NACA members via GovConChannel.com as well as hosting content from NACA and it’s members on the site as well.
Timberlake adds,”We’re going to hit the ground running with some of our flagship content from The ASBCs of Government Contracting™ and our B2G Education (B2GEDU) programs. As we have for thousands of companies since we launched in 2004, we plan to help NACA member companies reduce drag, where needed, in how they identify, qualify and pursue opportunities, and help them understand what information they need, where they can find it and how to use it develop key relationships, mitigate risk and decrease their cost of acquiring business, what we call C.A.B. fare.”
