The National Small Business Association (NSBA) is seeking leaders from the small business community to become part of NSBA’s Leadership Council. This is a great way to get involved in small business advocacy as well as promote yourself and your business both nationally and in your community.
Specifically we are seeking members who may know their member of Congress, have experience in leadership positions in other organizations, have had some experience in dealing with the media and most importantly are passionate about small business. Our goal is to have at least one Leadership Council member in each Congressional District.
The needs of small business has to be communicated to our political leadership in an effective manner so that loans, grants, contracts and small business relief measures are a national priority as we emerge from the pandemic. Congress also needs to understand the impact of tax and regulatory policies, the need for smaller firms to have access to affordable and reliable energy, the lack of qualified workers available for hire and the competitive disadvantage small firms face compared with large corporations.
We have developed a survey to better understand your leadership qualifications. To be considered please complete the Leadership Council Survey.
The NSBA Leadership Council is the premiere network of small-business leaders from across the U.S. who meet on a regular basis to identify key issues that are important to the small business community. Our members bring a wide variety of skills and interests to the table. Some of our members like to work in the background while others like to be in front of the camera. We need all types because we have a message that needs to be communicated. We need to get the attention of our elected officials and educate them on our real-world issues. Small business is the backbone of the U.S. Economy, but lawmakers and government officials often simply play lip service to our needs while they lavish support and contracts on their deep pocket big business contributors.
If you are interested in becoming a spokesperson for small business and gain visibility for you and your firm while helping advance the small-business community before lawmakers and members of the media please consider this opportunity.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. We look forward to talking with you soon.
