Greater Birmingham Area Government Business Matchmaker

CANCELED

Due to the rapidly changing situation with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the cautious guidelines provided by our host institution (The University of Alabama); as well as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; we regrettably have canceled the subject event. 

If things change that allow us to re-schedule this event later in the year, we will certainly let everyone know as soon as that information becomes available but as for now, there is no new date determined.

CANCELED
