Benefits of Membership in the 8a Association

As the new 2023 President of the El Paso 8a & Government Contractors Association Board of Directors, my hope and wish is to not only provide help to business owners already engaged with our Association but to expand and extend our services to future business owners, and to the future generation of students that one day will be our workforce.

As stated in our mission, by mentoring future owners we get to impart our knowledge and assist them by avoiding the same mistakes, and perhaps the same headaches, that we went through when starting, operating, and finding business opportunities in our own businesses. It is my hope that by partnering with local institutions and by spreading the positive reputation of the El Paso 8a & Government Contractors Association to this younger generation, we get to leave El Paso a more successful City by providing our services to Federal, State, Local Government, Commercial and Residential entities for years to come!

The board and I have an action-packed year planned for you! It includes FACE TO FACE SUPPORT AND INFORMAL MENTORING, OPPORTUNITIES TO absorb lessons learned FROM SUCCESSFUL Contractors (8a current or graduates, WOSB, SDVOSB, HUB Federal/State, and DOT! Our board members are ready to help you! See our summary of priority goals below!
