Community activists, construction industry leaders, and many local elected officials lament that not enough has been done to stimulate more success among women and minorities in the local construction industry. To further the achievements of the popular annual Small, Minority, Women and Veterans Business Owners Conference, Bexar County and the San Antonio Chapter of the Associated General Contractors offer a basic educational program.

The purpose of this 10-week, 20 hour program is to build and improve the capacity of small, women, and minority-owned firms in the construction industry.  The course outline for the ten sessions is as follows:

  • Overview of a Successful Construction Business
  • Developing a Business Plan
  • Financial Management
  • Project Scheduling
  • Bidding and Estimating
  • Safety and Health
  • Project Management
  • Construction Law and Contract Documents
  • Bonds, Liens, and Insurance
  • Marketing and Business Development
