RAIL CONSTRUCTION CORPORATION SPONSORS SEMINAR PROGRAM FOR SMALL MINORITY- AND WOMEN-OWNED FIRMS

 RAIL CONSTRUCTION CORPORATION SPONSORS SEMINAR PROGRAM
 FOR SMALL MINORITY- AND WOMEN-OWNED FIRMS
 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Rail Construction Corp. (RCC), the construction subsidiary of the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission (LACTC), is introducing a series of seminars called STEPS, Success Through Excellent Professional Services.
 The RCC initiated this professional development program in keeping their policy to assist small, minority- and women-owned professional service firms in doing business successfully with the RCC/LACTC and other public sector clients.
 The first component of the STEPS program is a full-day seminar: "Getting on Track: How to Effectively Market Professional Services." Subsequent STEPS seminars will focus on contract administration and project management.
 The one-day seminar will be offered on three different dates: Thursday, Oct. 29; Tuesday, Nov. 10; and Thursday, Nov. 19, 1992 at a downtown Los Angeles location. The hours will be from 8:30 a.m.-6:45 p.m. There is no charge to attend the seminar.
 Ed McSpedon, RCC president said, "We deliberately designed STEPS as a series of seminars, rather than a large conference, because we want to give people several opportunities to participate. We hope that they will leave the seminar with a better understanding of the RCC's program and more confidence about how to market their services.
 "Our 30-year plan calls for $183 billion worth of transportation improvements. The program offers significant opportunities for small, minority- and women-owned firms to provide design-related services."
 Seminar participants will learn techniques for marketing to the public sector. Topics include: the RCC's long- and short-term Metro Rail program, overview of the RCC solicitation and selection processes, techniques for effectively communicating qualifications, creating teams and joint venture relationships and the interview process.
 It is important to register early because enrollment will be on a first-come basis and limited in size to facilitate participation. There will be no on-site registration. Only those with prior written confirmation may attend.
 For more information and to request a registration form, call 213-362-9475.
