The NFIB/Ohio member activism program was busy during the second quarter of 2014 holding 12 separate Area Action Council meeting across the state bringing small-business owners together with their members of Congress.
The round of meetings kicked off in Greenville, Ohio in a joint meeting held with the Darke Chamber of Commerce that featured Speaker of the House John Boehner. Leadership Council member Ty Baker-Baumann introduced Speaker Boehner to a crowd of 200.

The 11 additional meetings featured Congressmen Steve
Chabot (Cincinnati), Jim Jordan (Sidney, Lima & Norwalk), Bill Johnson
(Marietta & Steubenville), Bob Gibbs (Canton), Jim Renacci (Akron), David
Joyce (Lake-Geauga), Steve Stivers (Columbus) and Pat Tiberi (Columbus).
Issues discussed at the meetings included:
- The current IRS and VA problems;
- Energy and Over-Regulations;
- Government Spending;
- and Job Creation
We appreciate the time our small-business owner members took to attend these meetings and share what was on their mind to help our members of Congress know what is important to them. Additional meetings with Congressmen Latta (Toledo & Archbold) and another with Congressman Johnson (Zanesville) are on the horizon from the month of August.
