Business Watch is a trade association serving the unique needs of government contractors.
Our members work hand-in-hand with elected officials and administrators as colleagues, solving problems together.
We strengthen working relationships in ways other professional associations simply cannot.
All events are subject to change and have a registration fee to which credits can be applied.
Some have limited registrations and early response will increase the ability to attend.
Please contact Beth via Email or call (727) 797-9333 for more information on general registration fees. As registration opens for each event, we’ll provide specifics as links in the calendar below, please click the topic description in order to access.
