ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Calvin Ball and the Office of Purchasing have invited local businesses to participate in a certification workshop at Miller Branch Library.

The workshop is free, but space is limited. Advance registration is recommended at [email protected] or by calling 410-313-6370.
“Our free workshop is an exciting opportunity to connect local business owners with County programs and resources.
