Atlanta City Council President Felicia A. Moore To Host Atlanta Business Matters Supplier Diversity and Development Forum 

ATLANTA — Atlanta City Council President Felicia A. Moore will host the third installment of her Atlanta Business Matters Forum Monday, June 10. The event will focus on supplier diversity and development and be held from 9 a.m. to noon at Georgia Power Arkwright Auditorium, 241 Ralph McGill Boulevard NE, Atlanta. The purpose of this free event is to highlight and discuss ways to enhance the experience of business owners in Atlanta.

Forum attendees will learn how to access capital, establish a social media presence and develop a corporation readiness portfolio. Participants can also interface with procurement professionals from various industries during the forum.
