SBIR/STTR award winners - please join our conference call!

Are you an SBIR or STTR award winner? If so, we especially seek your participation in the National Conference Call on the SBIR reauthorization activities currently underway in the Senate that will be held on Thursday, July 31st at 1PM Eastern Time.

The call in number is 616-712-8000, and the Conference Code is 727524#.

The purpose of the call will be to discuss the particulars of the Senate bill that's being marked up today, and Jere Glover, Executive Director of the SBTC, will be presenting the SBTC's position on it.

There is a chance that, like the House version, this bill could move very fast after it gets out of committee, and we want to make sure that you know what's in the bill, so that you can contact your Senator and tell them to either support or oppose it. Your position as a small business owner who benefited from SBIR funding will lend weight to your opinion.

But, even if you're not an award winner, you may join the call, of course. We need all the support we can get!
