The Cannabis Control Commission (Commission) recently adopted a policy to expedite the review of certain applications, within the general applicant pool, to promote full and robust participation by minorities, women, veterans, farmers, small businesses, and communities impacted by the War on Drugs. Amongst other groups, expedited review will apply to applicants that the SDO has certified as a:

  • Minority Business Enterprise (MBE);
  • Women Business Enterprise (WBE); or
  • Veteran Business Enterprise (VBE)

This free workshop is designed for businesses that are interested in learning how to apply for SDO certification. Attendance at a pre-certification workshop is required before a business may apply for certification as a minority, woman, veteran, and/or disadvantaged business enterprise. This workshop will provide information on how to begin the certification process.

Certification may help your business to become more marketable for government entities, learn about new government bidding opportunities, and create business-to-business (B2B) partnerships.
