Certified. What next?

Once certified there is still work to be done.  You should make an announcement about your new certification to your current companies that you
supply products or services.  Also, use the branding and logo information located on the WBENC website for your business cards, brochures, pamphlets, and website.  Attend Great Lakes Women’s Business

Council and WBENC events.  It may not be possible to attend every available event, but select the “biggest bang for your buck” – what fits your budget and where you can do the most prospecting.  Most importantly, keep your certification in good standing by making sure to be aware of your expiration date.  When the council says they require 90 days to complete the recertification process, they actually do.
