Utah Taxpayers Association, NFIB co-hosting annual event for Main Street entrepreneurs
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Feb. 2, 2018—Small-business owners from around Utah will converge on the State Capitol, Wednesday, February 7, for NFIB’s annual event aimed at putting job-creating entrepreneurs in direct touch with the people making the policies their enterprises must legally operate under. This year’s event is co-hosted by the Utah Taxpayers Association.
“We’re honored to have the Utah Taxpayers Association as a co-host, this year,” said Candace Daly, Utah state director for the National Federation of Independent Business, America’s voice of small business. “Our issues are almost identical to the association’s, and the more people we have in attendance, the more our voice is heard and remembered when the cut-and-thrust of policy amps up. We’re also very grateful to Utah Metal Works and South Valley Specialties for their contributions.”
NFIB’s Small Business Days at the Capitol have become one of the most circled dates on the calendars of legislators and top policymakers, who will speak at this year’s gathering about proposed legislation and rule changes affecting Main Street, mom-and-pop firms.
There is no cost to attend, and all small-business owners are invited but a reservation is required and can be made through the NFIB/Utah website, www.nfib.com/utah, or by clicking here. For further information can be provided by NFIB Grassroots Manager Melissa Keckler by email, [email protected], or by phoning her at 602-909-6625.

NFIB’s educational mission is to remind policymakers that small businesses are not smaller versions of bigger businesses; they have very different challenges and priorities.
