Hope all of you had an AMAZING Thanksgiving. I am filled with gratitude as I get to know you and look to 2023 as a year of training and focused engagements to accomplish your personal and business goals.
As 2022 comes to a close, WOW it has gone quickly, I am reminded of important opportunities, deadlines, and milestones.
Grant submissions for this quarter need to be in by mid-December. Would you benefit from Quick Response Training or Incumbent Worker Training Grants? Monies are available!
In May 2023, new DOD contracts will require some type of CMMC compliance. We do not yet know to what level or what documented evidence will be needed. Please PROACTIVELY prepare.
- For those of you with a QMS certification, your registrar will expect to see cyber security precautions within your risk assessment steps moving forward. Plan appropriately.
- Many “talent” options are becoming available if you are willing to think outside the box. The recent webinar was very informative. Are you in a position to take advantage of the Registered Apprentice Program?
Contact me to find out more. How can I assist you and your team? What support do you need from me? Let’s plan Q1 and exit this year ready for all that is available.
FloridaMakes and the Council are working to bring up to date content to you through webinars, in-person meetings, and a “Townhall” discussion. Stay tuned for these dates, and be sure to register.
