Contract conference set


Congressman Don Manzullo has announced a free government procurement conference on Oct. 29 for northern Illinois employers. It is designed to teach businesses and industries how to compete for more than $350 billion in federal contracts each year.

“Procon 2001” will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Performing Arts room at Rock Valley College. There also will be a video link to the McHenry County College site at Johnsburg High School and to Kishwaukee Community College and Sauk Valley College in Whiteside County.

Those in attendance will learn how to do business with the federal government and will be signed up at that time to receive federal bid announcements. Conference speakers will include representatives of the U.S. Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Small Business Administration and Government Services Administration.

To register for the conference, contact Kathie Rager at Congressman Manzullo’s office, (815) 394-1231. Additional information is available on line at or
