Are you ready to take an active role in shaping policy that impacts your business? Would you like to be a small business leader?

Last month, NFIB leadership council members from Washington and Oregon met together for a two-day conference in the Columbia River Gorge to discuss the state of small business in the Northwest, to strategize ways to advance pro-small-business policies, and to build pro-small-business majorities in the state legislatures.

Being an active leadership council member is the most valuable asset NFIB has for promoting the small-business agenda in Oregon. Examples of the things leadership council members do are:

  • Testify at legislative hearings involving small-business issues.
  • Host lawmakers for a tour of your business operations.
  • Be a quotable contact for the media.
  • Assist in implementing the political strategy for elections, including recruitment, endorsements, fundraising, and other grassroots efforts.
  • Help shape questions for the state ballot, the results from which are considered by lawmakers, state constitutional officers, and the bureaucracy to be the true voice of small business.

Because Oregon is a large state, we conduct most leadership council business by conference call and e-mail, although leadership council members are encouraged to attend in-person meetings at least three times per year, including NFIB’s annual Small Business Day at the Capitol event in Salem.

Nothing commands the attention of politicians better than hearing directly from a small-business owner. Serving on NFIB’s Oregon leadership council opens the doors of legislative offices. The leadership council also is a great way to meet other small-business pillars of the community like you
