Opportunities in the Agriculture Business abound. It’s time to take advantage of the resources available to you.

Preparedness and defense are critical to our food and agriculture sectors and to sustaining and growing rural America. That’s why the USDA is looking to military veterans across the country to fill the roles that keep America’s food supply safe and secure, preserve and strengthen rural communities, and restore and conserve the environment.

USDA wants to ensure that veterans looking to return home, or start a new career on a farm or in a rural community have the tools and opportunities you need to succeed

The rules governing SDVOSB eligibility underwent a major change in October 2018.

On October 1, the VA eliminated most of its SDVOSB and VOSB regulations, and the SBA issued new SDVOSB eligibility regulations, which apply to both VA and non-VA agencies.

For veterans familiar with the VA's old edicts, many of the new regulations may look familiar, but there are some very important differences. It is essential for SDVOSBs and VOSBs to understand these new rules, whether your company is al-ready verified or is pursuing verifica-tion for the first time.

This session covers the new SDVOSB and VOSB eligibility rules in-depth and explains how to successfully apply for SDVOSB or VOSB verification under these rules.

TARGET AUDIENCE

VOSB and SDVOSB firms
