Nearly 600 small business reps attended Metro's Meet the Primes

Nearly 600 small business representatives attended Metro’s annual Meet the Primes networking event on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at Gateway. Twenty-seven of the major construction firms that work in the L.A. region were on hand to meet and discuss future partnering opportunities.

Meet the Primes is a unique opportunity for small businesses and prime contractors to meet with actual decision-makers in a friendly and supportive environment. Sponsored by the Transportation Business Advisory Council (TBAC) and Metro’s Diversity & Economic Opportunity Department, this year’s presentation included information about the Project Labor Agreement and the resultant Construction Careers Policy. This is the sixth year Metro has hosted the event in support of Metro’s Small Business and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Programs.
