SBSD Hosts Webinar for SWaM Business Owners

JAMES CITY-In honor of Women’s History Month, James City County wants to recognize female business owners and encourage certification for SWaM (small, women, and minority-owned) business owners.

The SWaM program was established in 2006 to enhance opportunities for small businesses and minority- and woman-owned businesses across Virginia through contracting and procurement opportunities.  SWaM is managed by the Virginia Department of Small Business & Supplier Diversity (SBSD).

More than 30 businesses in James City County are women-owned certified businesses. The process to become SWaM certified is free and is valid for five years from approval.

SBSD is hosting a free webinar about how to become SWaM certified on Thursday, March 25, from 10 am til noon. For more information on the SWaM program or to register for the webinar, visit www.sbsd.virginia.gov/certification-division.
