The Capital Business Development Association (CBDA) is a Virginia registered educational 501(c)3 not-for-profit that focuses exclusively on supporting GOVCON small and medium sized businesses in identifying opportunities, winning them, and executing work in the federal, state, and local markets. CBDA members represent a wide variety of companies ranging from the largest systems integrators to mid-cap corporations, to small businesses across all socio-economic categories. Our programs bring government procurement and business leaders together, match companies with similar capabilities to pursue opportunities, foster winning business partnerships, and sponsor activities to promote information and intelligence sharing among our members. All of this is done at no cost to our individual members or the businesses they represent. Our mantra has been from the creation of CBDA – “You only have to pay for your meal!”
The CBDA mission is to afford GOVCON businesses, regardless of size, the opportunity to network, share opportunities, explore teaming possibilities, and share industry intelligence at little or no cost. We sponsor monthly dinners at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA. These well attended events promote networking between members and afford opportunities for developing new opportunities and teaming. We also sponsor working brown bag business development lunches that focus on specific member capabilities and areas of interest. Also, as we continue to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions the CBDA maintains a vibrant “Virtual Happy Hour” program via a Zoom platform to provide timely and relevant industry information to members.
We are one of the fastest growing business development/capture management industry associations in the Washington, DC area. Our members work within the Intelligence Community, DoD, Fed Civ, state, and local governments as well as commercial industries. At CBDA events you will meet other business development professionals that you know. More importantly, you will meet business developers that you NEED to know. We cordially invite you to join our group through our website “Contact Us” link and we welcome you to work with us to Find, WIN and Execute Opportunities!
