Minority-Owned Businesses Get Crack at High Speed Rail

Posted: Dec 03, 2012


Associated Professionals and Contractors of California (APAC) is celebrating the historic inclusion of small, minority and disadvantaged business enterprise goals by the California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) with a Small Business Opportunity Conference to be held Wednesday, Dec. 5. The conference is being held at the Empress of China, 838 Grant Ave., San Francisco, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Mistress of ceremonies, famed Bay Area newswoman Belva Davis will introduce such notable speakers as Congresswoman Barbara Lee and featured keynote speaker Dan Richard during a luncheon. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet CHSRA leadership, including Board Chairman Dan Richard and CHSRA Chief Council Tom Fellenz, as well as other authority board members.

The workshops and panel discussions are designed for attendees that are small, minority, women and disadvantaged business enterprise owners interested in engineering and construction contracts on the first segment of the California High-Speed Rail Project in the Central Valley. Most of the shortlisted design-build teams and engineering and environmental contractors will be present to discuss contracting opportunities on the $68 billion project.
