Dependable Global Solutions, Inc.
Tina C. Williams, Vice President, Civilian Division
While Dependable Global Solutions, Inc. (DGS) has been a part of SECAF now for just a year, I realized the organization’s benefits early on. Its ability to represent the concerns that small businesses have regarding federal policy decisions is unsurpassed. In just the last few weeks alone, SECAF provided members with not only notice, but also perspective on pending federal legislation that would greatly affect our sector. Had it not been for the organization, we would have been unaware of these critical developments and their ramifications.
Over the course of the next several years, I know that SECAF will have a tremendous and positive impact on DGS. By enabling us to make the valuable connections and partnerships that are a lifeline in our industry, we are going to be exposed to significant opportunities and have doors opened for us. Our plan is to fully leverage all of the offered membership benefits to help cement DGS’ future growth.
Finally, if I had to explain to someone why they should join, I would tell them that being connected with SECAF prior to a major need arising will well position you to have your voice heard by the right people when it is most needed.
