Diverse Business Shaking Hands


Business Watch is a trade association serving the unique needs of government contractors. Our members train side-by-side and 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.

We think of Business Watch as an extension of our firm's professional development and intergovernmental relationships.
