The Greater Riverside Chamber of Commerce, according to this flyer, is conducting a Business Seminar Series, “Doing Business with the City and County.”  They claim that you will walk away knowing how to navigate County of Riverside and City of Riverside online bidding processes, how to apply to be an approved vendor, and finally, how to be considered for upcoming government projects, services and products (I guess they will show you how to be part of the special, “in crowd,” of vendors or contractors).

Suspicious?  You should be.  The Chamber will be charging members $35 and non-members $75, in order to turn a profit off public employees the taxpayers of this City and County are paying salaries for.  Was their time away from the office also donated by the taxpayer?  Can every other non-profit in the area expect similar commitments from staff, or is this just a freebie you get when you host the Mayor’s State of the City Address?

These speakers are Virginia Wilson, Contract Compliance Officer County of Riverside,  Art Torres, Purchasing and Services & Risk Manager for the City of Riverside and Shiloh Rogers, Procurement & Contract Specialist for the City of RiversideSome have noticed that Ms. Rogers has reached the position of Procurement & Contract Specialist, whereby just recently she was working the front desk for the Department of Finance.  Well congratulations, that was quick!  Keep it up and we think you could become a rising star in the River City…and on this blog.
