Small Business Associations Join Forces to Strengthen Advocacy

The roundtable includes six associations that representing minority communities

As small business concerns are threatened to become lost amid other Congressional and White House priorities, six associations have united to better promote the role of their members in the American economy.

The Small Business Roundtable, launched last week, is designed to “advocate for policies that foster American entrepreneurship,” said Todd McCracken, president and CEO of the National Small Business Association (NSBA), in a statement. By joining forces, SBR hopes to give the member associations a “more cohesive voice on public policy [and] allow small business leaders a place to share information and increase their influence.”

The group’s six founding members are NSBA, the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council), the National Association for the Self-Employed, National Association of Women Business Owners, the U.S. Black Chambers and the Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce & Entrepreneurship (National ACE).
