Have you thought about doing business with the State of Alaska but don’t know where to start? Maybe you think getting a state contract is too complicated or your business is too small or you think the State of Alaska will call you if it wants to do business. Please join the PTAC, the Alaska Division of Economic Development (DED), and guest speaker, Jason Soza, Chief Procurement Officer for the State of Alaska, who will dispel these and other myths regarding Doing Business with the State of Alaska, including an overview of various preference programs that give qualifying Alaska businesses an advantage when competing for state contracts. DED’s Caryl McConkie will also provide details on how easy it is to sign up for the Alaska Product Preference Program. Webinar will also be available. If you cannot attend in person, you can participate via webinar. Please read the registration directions if you plan to attend via webinar.

 This is a free workshop and registration is mandatory. Seating is limited and walk-ins will be turned away if the workshop is full. This is also available via webinar. If you plan to attend via webinar, you must email Jody King at and request webinar attendance. Webinar access information will be emailed on the Tuesday before the workshop. Note: The workshop location might be changed to accommodate more attendees. Should the location be moved, an email will be sent out with the new location address.
