Advocacy

NFIB is the leading advocate for small business owners, with offices in Washington, D.C., and every state capital. Our mission is to defend the right of small business owners to run their businesses without undue government interference and to advance public policies that promote their success. We proudly represent hundreds of thousands of members nationwide from every industry and sector. And we are the only major business organization whose policies and positions are established by the members directly, not by executive staff or the Board of Directors. That’s what makes us credible, widely respected and effective.
