Texas Opportunity: Building the Lone Star State

capitol-complexWomen- and minority-owned businesses, here is an opportunity to grow your business beyond your expatiations. A budget of $1.1 billion has been allocated by the State of Texas to build additional facilities, office space and support facilities to the Texas Capitol Complex.

In a collaborative effort between the Texas Facilities Commission, the Texas Association of Mexican Americans Chambers of Commerce (TAMACC) and the Texas Association of African American Chambers of Commerce (TAAACC) they are hosting the 1st Annual HUB Fair to ensure that all Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) are aware of the upcoming opportunities associated with the $1.1 billion appropriated to Texas Facilities Commission in the 84th Legislative Session.

If you are not HUB certified and would like to take advantage of this opportunity, contact the BACC office at (512) 295-9999 or email info@budachamber.com. We will provide the resources and assistance necessary for you to become HUB certified.
