Past Event Announcement: Join us in California for Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables
These events occurred 4/30-5/4/2018
The SBA Office of Advocacy is an independent office that serves as a voice for small business within the federal government, the watchdog for the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) and the source of small business statistics. Advocacy advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, federal agencies, federal courts, and state policy makers.
President Donald J. Trump has made regulatory reform a centerpiece of his agenda and has signed two executive orders addressing the regulatory burden faced by the private sector. Advocacy has a unique and important role to aid agency implementation of the executive orders. To assist in accomplishing the goals of the executive orders, the office has developed a Regulatory Reform Action Plan.
As part of this plan, Advocacy is hosting Regional Regulatory Reform Roundtables across the country in an effort to hear directly from small businesses about what regulations concern them the most. This is an opportunity for small business owners and stakeholders to meet in-person with Advocacy senior staff. The next set of roundtables will be in California the week of April 30. These roundtables are free and open to the public.
Please join us in California April 30-May 3:
Modesto, CA – Monday, April 30, DoubleTree Modesto, 1150 Ninth Street, Modesto, CA 95354.
Sacramento, CA – Wednesday, May 2, SAFE Credit Union – Corporate Headquarters , 2295 Iron Point Rd #100, Folsom, CA 95630.
Santa Clarita, CA – Thursday, May 3, Small Business Development Center, College of the Canyons, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, University Center, Santa Clarita, CA 91355
In order for this regulatory reform effort to be successful, we need small business participation. This will be an opportunity for small business leaders to educate Advocacy and federal agencies through firsthand accounts of how they are impacted by federal regulations. The information gathered at these roundtables will be utilized to inform agencies, congress and the public on what specific regulations can be modified or removed to help small businesses.
