(Austin, TX) Dec. 15, 2014 — NFIB/Texas, the state’s largest small business advocacy association, will be meeting with small business owners and members as part of the weeklong membership development and education gathering in Tarrant and Dallas Counties.
Gearing up for the 84th Legislative Session, the team plans to meet with area business owners to hear more about the everyday policy issues that impact their business and to gain more insight into small business needs.
“We are once again focused on the elimination of the state’s franchise tax in the 84th Legislative Session that negatively effects Texas small business,” said NFIB/Texas Executive Director Will Newton. “Visiting with business owners will provide valuable time to discuss their current concerns and how we can work together to abolish the margin tax.”
Newton, the executive director of NFIB/Texas since January 2005, with 30 years of experience in Texas government and business association work, will also be meeting with area business owners. The information gained during these meetings will be utilized in advocacy of small business during Legislative Session.
NFIB has 24,000 dues-paying members in Texas representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. The NFIB team will convene throughout the week in the Metroplex.
