ULM and Delta Community College Welcome Your Business

The University of Louisiana at Monroe and Delta Community College are encouraging local businesses to work with them.

A free workshop detailing how to work with both institutions is set for Thursday, May 12 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the university conference center on the 7th floor of the ULM Library. Lunch will be provided.

According to Dr. Nick Bruno, Vice President for Business Affairs at ULM, the reason many businesses do not have the opportunity to work with the universities is that they do not do what is necessary to win their business.

Representatives from the purchasing departments of both schools will explain the process of doing business with the two institutions. The workshop will include who to contact and what a business must do to be ready to work with ULM and Delta. Bruno and Cecil Willis, Director of Purchasing at ULM, will represent the university and Glen Roscoe, CFO and Business Manager at Delta, and Cherry Canady, Director of Purchasing, will represent the Community College.

The luncheon is sponsored by the Consortium for Education, Research and Technology (CERT) and the North Louisiana Partnership for Innovation (NLPI). The public is invited to attend. There is no charge, but please RSVP by calling 342-5440. Attendance is limited to 75 people.
