Mike, perhaps I missed it, but I don't see information about signing up for this training? Also, is all of that really going to be covered in just two hours? Wow!

The Best Practices in Developing Bid Documents and RFPs/RFQs is part of the Thurston County Chamber’s annual Business Showcase. The morning workshop is free for public procurement staff, however space is limited and priority registration will be given to those participating in the full event. Please contact Alisha Blain, Event Coordinator at the Chamber at (360) 357-3362 or for more information or to register.

This will be a very high level overview of these topics. Yes, it's an ambitious agenda for two hours!
