(Lansing, Mich.) – The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), the satellite office of South Central Michigan housed within the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC), is very pleased to announce that the chapter continues to grow their success, almost doubling the 2013 first quarter totals from the 2012 totals.
