Dear Ohio NFIB Member,
Small business is important to Ohio, as it is home to nearly one million small businesses that account for 28.6 percent of all economic activity in the state or approximately $51.7 billion. More than 98 percent of all employers in Ohio are small firms, employing nearly 49 percent of all private-sector jobs.
The Ohio chapter
of the National Federation of Independent Business is the largest of all 50 states, serving over 25,000 members. Our typical member has fewer than 10 employees and less than $500,000 in gross annual sales. Our public policy positions continue to be derived directly from our members, via frequent member ballots and surveys. We only take a stand on issues that they say are important.
We have an extensive member activism program served by 20 Area Action Councils across the state that meet regularly throughout the year and cover legislative issues important to our members as well as bringing elected officials to meet with them and discuss current topics. We also have 32 members serving in the Ohio General Assembly and two members are a part of the Ohio Congressional delegation.
Members in Ohio may also qualify to participate in our workers’ compensation group rating program, where they can save up to 53 percent on their premiums, as well as participate in the many additional member benefit programs
offered through NFIB.
