Celebrating Diversity in Construction

The evening of Wednesday, April 27th in the ballroom at the Willard Hotel, a group of small business advocacy groups; DC Metro Hispanic Contractors Assoc., Anacostia Economic Development Corporation, National Assoc. of Minority Contractors and the CHOICE program of the Building Trades Unions, celebrated 'Diversity in Construction' by recognizing 12 construction firms who represent the highest quality of efforts to insure access, transparency and the nurturing of small businesses.

Remarkable construction workshop

DC Metro Hispanic Contractors Assoc. together with Chata Bernal of Better Business Consulting and the Flory Center of Prince William's County celebrated a remarkable construction workshop (first of its kind for the Hispanic community in that area) on Thursday, July 21 at the VFW Post in Manassas.

Unauthorized Changes Endanger DC Small Business Growth

The Construction Alliance, a coalition of four organizations; Anacostia Economic Development Corporation (AEDC), DC Metro Hispanic Contractors Association (DCMHCA), the Building Trades Union (CHOICE) and the National Association of Minority Contractors-DC Metro Chapter (NAMCDC), is shocked to learn that without public discussion, hearings or apparent authority to do so, staffers at the Dept. of General Services (DGS) diluted the value of preference points allocated to District Certified Business Enterprises (CBE's) that qualify under DC law 16-33 code 2-218.01, the Small Local & Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Development & Assistance Act of 2005. The staff decisions at DGS go against everything we have fought for and rely on as a small business community; transparency, accountability and the rule of law. We applaud the efforts of the administration of Mayor Muriel Bowser to undo these decisions that impact the hard fought ground that local, small and disadvantaged businesses have gained throughout the years.
