The Topic:

"As past Chair of the nation's oldest small business advocacy group, NSBA I was in the midst of White House Briefings, congressional Briefings and Issue Briefings in Washington D.C. the week of September 12t h - followed by attendance at the Annual Meeting of the Regulatory Fairness Board the week of September 19th , where I serve under the National Ombudsman. The National Ombudsman and board members from all fifty states meet to evaluate the impact of regulation on small business and action steps to bring national focus on the issues and avenues for action.

There were close to 130 small business owners who converged on the capital - intent on being heard. These trips have gotten me into the West Wing of the White House, before congressional committees and into intense discussions with key staff drafting legislation. This trip I was one of three on a panel hosted on capitol hill by the Small Business Chief Office of Advocacy convened to find solutions to small business access to capital woes. I had meetings with the Chief Economist at the SBA and the economist at the American Bankers Association.

These meetings provide key insights into the who, what and why behind the headlines..especially small business issues which are so often misunderstood or misrepresented. These are insights I share with the small business owners I meet."
