On Thursday, January 24, 2019, Ken Lukonis, President and CEO of Strategic Alliance Consulting, Inc. (Strategic ACI), donated $3,000 to the National Center for Veterans Institute for Procurement (VIP). VIP is a veteran entrepreneurship program that specifically addresses federal procurement by offering three (3) expert training programs to assist veteran owned businesses.
Ken graduated from the VIP GROW program, a 3-day, 27-hour comprehensive certification course designed to assist companies in developing strategies to expand and operate within the federal marketplace, on March 22, 2018. At that graduation, VIP also celebrated the 1,000th graduate milestone for the VIP Training Program.
“As a Service-Disabled Veteran and VIP graduate, it is great knowing there are organizations out there that will train us and better equip us to do business with the government and in turn allow us to continue serving this country. I have yet to find an organization that better fulfills this mission than VIP,” said Lukonis. As a result of his participation in the VIP GROW program, Strategic ACI continues to thrive as a well-respected and exceptional SDVOSB government contracting company.
“I love to see when VIP graduates come back to support what we are doing,” stated Barbara Ashe, VIP National Director, in reaction to Lukonis’ donation. “They have seen the benefits of the work we do, and they want to help other veterans have the same opportunity to benefit from VIP.”
