Blacks who own a business or might own a business in the future are invited to attend a meeting Friday, May 3, at 6 p.m. at US WEST Communications, 250 E. 200 South, to receive information aimed at increasing their procurement opportunities.

Maj-Greth Holmberg, assistant vice president of Valley Bank and Trust, and Danny Lopez, co-chairman of the USDC, will talk about ways blacks can increase their business.
