The mission of the Defense Council is to achieve the strategic goal of “Creating maximum opportunities for small businesses”, the DoD Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) established seven regional councils across the country. The Councils primary objective is to promote the Federal Small Business Programs, to include Small Business, HUBZone Small Business, Women-Owned Small Business, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, DOD Pilot Mentor-Protégé Program and Indian Incentive Program. The Councils provide a single forum for small business professionals to train, exchange ideas and experiences, as well as share and disseminate information on the Federal Small Business Programs with a focus on collectively addressing issues of importance to small businesses. As a result, the council members are kept abreast of statutes, policies, trends and technologies affecting the Small Business Programs.
“It is with great honor that we received the opportunity to speak such an amazing organization. We hope to continue to provide invaluable support to the Department of Defense”, says Errol Gorman CEO of the Ginisis Group.
