Would You Like To Be A Small Business Leader?

Date: December 10, 2015

A strong Leadership Council is the most valuable tool NFIB has for promoting the small-business agenda in Oregon. Among things council members do are:
  • help shape questions for the state ballot, the results from which are considered by lawmakers, state constitutional officers, and the bureaucracy to be the true voice of small business
  • testify at legislative hearings involving small-business issues
  • assist in developing and implementing political strategy for 2016, including recruitment, endorsements, fundraising, and grassroots efforts
  • help recruit future small-business owners by participating in the Young Entrepreneur Foundation award program
  • and – if you want – are put on our roster of contacts for media questions.
We conduct most Leadership Council business with a two-day meeting in person once per quarter. Additionally, we conduct single item issues by conference call and e-mail.
Nothing commands the attention of politicians better than hearing directly from a small-business owner, and being an NFIB Leadership Council member as well opens the doors of legislative offices and opens the ears of elected officials even wider. The Leadership Council also is a great way to meet other small-business pillars of the community like you.
For more information about this and other opportunities to be more involved in setting the small-business agenda, send an email to NFIB Member Support Manager Stacy Jenkins.
