The 8-PAC News Aggregator was founded for the purpose of aggregating the most relevant information to keep 8(a), Woman, and Veteran owned small business owners informed and to promote broader conversation in order to strengthen our collective Voice.
It’s what we do. It’s who we are.
On September 19, 2007, we created the 8-PAC Small Business Discussion Group on LinkedIn to serve as the framework and archive for our many discussions. Almost two years later, the outcome has exceeded our initial expectations.
In response to the many requests for delineation of discussion by specific group; we have created three independent Sub-discussion groups to eliminate the overlap of perspective; one for 8(a), Woman, and Veteran owned small business owners, respectively. The main discussion group will continue to be used for the purpose of general dialogue.
I sincerely hope that this step increases the flexibility of communication between and about each of our constituent groups.
If you are a small business owner, and want to talk with other folk just like yourself, from across the US and even beyond our borders; simply go to the following respective links:

and sign-up. You will get as good as you give and perhaps develop a few relationships along the way.
Again, it’s what we do. It’s who we are.
