WHO WE ARE

NFIB is the voice of small business, advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners, both in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals. NFIB is nonprofit, nonpartisan, and member-driven. Since our founding in 1943, NFIB has been exclusively dedicated to small and independent businesses, and remains so today.

WHAT WE DO 

WE ADVOCATE


When a big issue affects small and independent businesses, NFIB is there. We have been for 75 years, and we will continue to be. We represent our members’ interests—our one member, one vote balloting process guides our work.

NFIB has an ear to the ground on what’s happening in Washington, D.C., and the state capitals. That puts NFIB at the forefront of advocating on today’s most pressing small business issues, such as taxes, healthcare, and regulations.

WE INFLUENCE


When NFIB speaks, legislators listen. They know that we bring them the voice of small business. 

That voice, hundreds of thousands of strong, comes directly from NFIB’s members and our research—combined, they make a powerful and influential case for our advocacy.

Because of NFIB’s credibility, we are asked to bring the small business perspective to Congress, state capitals, the courts, and the media.

HISTORY OF NFIB

NFIB was founded by C. Wilson Harder in 1943 and maintained its headquarters in San Mateo, California, until 1992 when it was relocated to Nashville,TN. Harder began with a home office and sold the first memberships to his neighbors. His vision was to give small and independent business a voice in governmental decision-making through advocacy. Since its early history, NFIB’s agenda has been determined through a one-vote balloting process of its membership. NFIB has grown from Harder’s for-profit entrepreneurial vision in 1943 to the non-profit national association it is today.
