Next Meeting  –  July 11, 2022

* Agenda and Background will be posted the week prior to each call.

Policy Committees

Below are links to each of our Policy Group webpages with links to past agendas and backgrounders as well as a variety of white-papers and other resources.

Issues Filter

Because we are an advocacy organization, any new issue brought to the table needs to pass through an “issues filter.” Prior to bringing a new issue to the committee, the following questions should be addressed by you:

  1. Is the issue a specific small business issue or does the small business perspective add value to a broader conversation?
  2. How widely will this issue affect and impact our overall membership? Do a significant number of members share the same position?
  3. Can our organization truly have an impact?
  4. Are there direct legislative or regulatory actions NSBA staff can take to impact the issue or can we join the efforts of other groups who are taking the lead on it?
