The purpose of the Department of General Services (DGS) Small Business Advisory Council is to provide a forum for representatives of the California small business community to provide input on policies and practices that impact small business participation in the state procurement and contracting process.
“I am thrilled to be appointed to this Small Business Advisory Council and honored to be representing the National Association of Women Business Owners, California.” said Cecelia McCloy, CEO and President of ISSi.

“Assisting Woman-Owned Small Businesses in increasing their access to state business opportunities is good for California. The purpose of this committee is to recommend strategies to communicate the benefits of certification throughout the small business community and to increase the number of small business firms that are certified to do business with the state,” said Ms. McCloy. “Small businesses are innovators and solution finders and the state of California can benefit from their ideas.”
