April 10: WBE ACTION ITEM
ONLY the female owner will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions to create an account in our MatchMaker tool EventDex and update the company’s MatchMaker profile. WBEs are responsible for blocking 1:1 MatchMaker meeting times they are not available for so that Corporate Members cannot schedule a meeting during a time the WBE is not available. If the female owner is not attending, please make sure she is aware of the email and knows which staff person to forward important MatchMaker information to. If no email is received by the female owner, please email email@example.com to identify if your company is eligible to participate in 1:1 Matchmaker.
April 24: WBE DEADLINE
All WBE profiles must be completed no later than Thuesday, April 24, 2018. Those WBEs who do not complete their MatchMaker profile in EventDex will automatically be excluded from the 1:1 MatchMaker selection process.
APRIL 25: MATCHMAKER SELECTION PROCESS BEGINS
After the April 24 WBE deadline, the participating National Corporate and Government Members will begin the MatchMaker selection process by reviewing eligible WBE profiles to identify WBEs that sell products/services in alignment with their current sourcing needs. After reviewing the profiles, Corporate/Government Members will determine which WBEs will receive an invitation to meet 1:1 during the MatchMaker event for 20 minutes. All National Corporate and Government Members must complete 1:1 MatchMaker scheduling by May 25.
May 25 : CORPORATE DEADLINE FOR SCHEDULING
All 1:1 MatchMaker scheduling by National Corporate and Government Members will be completed by May 25, 2018. Once a Corporate or Government Member has scheduled a 1:1 MatchMaker meeting with a WBE, the WBE will receive an email notification. However, it is strongly recommended that the WBE check their company’s schedule in the MatchMaker tool EventDex. All MatchMaker scheduling ends on May 25, 2018.
