Chair Chabot Headlines ChallengeHER – Cincinnati

WIPP was honored to host House Small Business Committee Chair Steve Chabot (R-OH) at ChallengeHER - Cincinnati.  This event, one of over a dozen hosted nationwide in 2015, gave the Chair an opportunity to discuss the work of the Committee with a crowd of over 100 women entrepreneurs.  Chair Chabot highlighted the Committee’s efforts to tackle burdensome regulations, contracting issues and increase procurement opportunities for small firms.  


ChallengeHER, a joint venture between WIPP, the Small Business Administration (SBA) and American Express OPEN, promotes the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) federal contracting program.  Chair Chabot, along with the other speakers and guests, made quite a timely appearance. Sole-source contracting authority for WOSBs had been finalized the previous day and gave the Chair and the contracting panels much to discuss. It is important for women business owners to engage with their elected officials and understand the assistance Congressional offices can provide.
