We continue to increase our inventory into the audiovisual aspect of the company. We've added two more projection screens. These screens are widescreen (16x9) format and are front/rear projection screens. Additionally we've added HDMI switchers and splitters, as well as more staging pieces to round out the AV purchases for this year. One of our events with the new screens was something a bit different, a private home outdoor movie party. That was a nice gig!
In October we began the process of applying for Maryland's Disadvantaged Business (DBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Small Business Enterprise (SBE) certifications. This is a very detailed and lengthy process, but we feel it's well worth it. Our application has been accepted and processed, and we have completed the "in-person" investigation. This is about the halfway mark, hopefully all will be approved in the next month or so. We believe we will qualify for all 3 certifications. This should open up opportunities for state and local government contracts. Additionally, we've initiated the process for getting our Veteran Owned Business certification.
Our CEO has been selected a second year as a Director for the Laurel Board of Trade. We also received an Appreciated Award for our support of the 2018 Laurel Back to School Jam.
