The first day of NFIB’s Virtual Small Business Day streamed today. Small Business Day is usually held in person, but this year’s event was moved online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event was streamed live, although some segments were prerecorded for scheduling purposes.
The prerecorded segments included an exclusive conversation between Gov. Brian Kemp and NFIB State Director Nathan Humphrey and Georgia Leadership Council members Mychal Walker and Cade Joiner. The chat, which touched on topics including Georgia’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and this year’s legislative session, was recorded in the governor’s office on March 3.
Other speakers on Day One included NFIB President & CEO Brad Close, House Majority Leader Jon Burns, Senate President Pro Tem Butch Miller and Sen. Jason Anavitarte. Watch all of Day One’s presentations below:
On the second and final day of the virtual event, NFIB Vice President Kevin Kuhlman briefed small business owners on federal legislation, and U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk logged in for a virtual roundtable discussion on issues that are important to Georgia’s small business community.
