Two workshops have been announced with a goal of helping small businesses secure a chunk of regional construction projects.

The first is being held by the Beaufort County School District from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight at 2900 Mink Point Boulevard. 

This session is intended to allow minority, local and female-owned businesses and vendors to connect with the district and general contractors to discuss upcoming projects and potential business.

The second announced session is being hosted by the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce and focusses on Department of Defense work.

This session will be held at 9 a.m. April 6 at Technical College of the Lowcountry's Beaufort Campus, Building 23, 921 Ribaut Road.

Again, this session is planned to allow local contractors to connect with the DOD and general contractors on upcoming projects.
