Small business owners who are looking for ways to expand their operations may not realize they can get some help through the federal government. That's why many of them went to the fourth annual Dynamic Networking for Small Business Conference that was held in Fairmont all day on Wednesday.

Small business owners actually have a lot of opportunities to partner with the government to expand their business.

The Small Business Administration was created to help small businesses start, grow and succeed. Officials said they do that through three C's: counseling, providing access to capital and government contracting and assistance. That's why SBA officials were at the DYNET conference Wednesday to help train small business owners. Close to 250 attendees were able to sit through training workshops and meet important government sources that can help expand their business.
The U.S. is the world's largest buyer of goods and services, spending $529 billion on those types of purchases last year. Government contracting is a tool that can help small businesses expand and remain viable in today's economy.

The SBA does hold these types of conferences several times a year throughout our area. For more information visit
