Greater Austin Asian Chamber of Commerce Connect Forum

Kimberly Moore
Connect Forum is GAACC’s diversity procurement program.
Connect Forum is GAACC’s diversity procurement program. It consists of two parts; first a certification workshop that we host with a local partner such as the City of Austin’s Small & Minority Business Resources, State of Texas Historically Underutilized Business, or the Southwest Minority Supplier Development Council. The second part of the program is a roundtable where agencies and corporations who are looking for minority businesses to contract with can share their current needs and upcoming projects. We host four quarterly Connect Forums at the Asian American Resource Center in Austin, Texas. We have a dedicated staff follow up on the certification workshops to encourage them to get certified and provide necessary assistance in that process. We will also follow up with the vendors to record how many actually end up contracting with a minority business that they met at a Connect Forum.
