Todd McCracken Headshot70 Million Conversations:

For Small Business, There is no Recess.

Welcome to NSBA’s campaign to connect lawmakers and candidates with America’s small businesses. Over the coming weeks, NSBA is urging its members to take advantage of the prolonged Congressional recess and invite their Members of Congress and/or candidates to visit their place of business to talk about the key issues facing small business today.

We started this campaign to provide you with valuable resources in conducting these visits, and also to underscore the fact that small-business challenges never take a recess—and it’s up to us to make sure our elected officials understand these issues.

On this page, you’ll find a variety of resources to help you plan an event for your lawmakers and/or candidates at your business. Please download the “Visit Guidelines” document for all the details and check out the various resources listed in our sidebar to the right.

There are 70 million people in the U.S. who run or work for a small business – let’s make sure our elected officials hear from us!

–Todd McCracken, NSBA President and CEO
