NFIB Voice of Small Business DC Fly-In


You are invited to be the
“Voice of Small Business” at
NFIB’s DC Fly-In July 26 and 27, 2017

A new Congress has been elected to represent you and your business. Join NFIB and fellow members as we meet with and educate Members of Congress on key small business issues.

During last year’s Fly-In, NFIB members urged Members of Congress and their staff to repeal the IRS health penalty. A few months later, it became law! The same thing happened with making small business expensing permanent the year before. These two examples are proof that your voice will make a real difference, and that Congress is listening.

The first 100 members to register will receive complimentary hotel accommodations for the night of July 26, 2017.  If you are a member of the Leadership Trust and will be attending the Leadership Trust Appreciation Dinner the evening of July 27, you will receive two free nights of lodging.
