If you represent a small business based in California, you may be eligible to win a $400 award to offset your cost of attending APBO.

California State Trade and Export Promotion (California STEP), funded by the U.S. Small Business Administration, is offering California small businesses a limited number of STEP awards to attend the APBO 2013 Conference.

STEP Awards are available to registrants who are:

 •  California based small business
