Your Day at the State Capitol is March 27
From NFIB Hawaii
NFIB/Hawaii urges its members to make every effort to attend the annual Small Business Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, March 27.
Every major poll shows small-business owners the most highly regarded group in America, and every elected official claims to be your friend. So how come this doesn’t translate into better legislation and laws for Main Street enterprises? Because out of sight is out of mind.
During the cut and thrust of legislative activity, even lawmakers who should know better can fall victim to the persuasion of the supremely well-funded lobbying machines of trial lawyers, big labor, and advocates for bigger and bigger government—while small-business owners must attend fulltime to the running of their enterprises.
To help blunt the force of big money, NFIB hosts annual Small Business Day events at the Capitol, and the more members who attend, the louder we speak, and the less we are forgotten. Tentatively scheduled for the day’s events are:
Welcome/Overview of NFIB legislative priorities from NFIB/Hawaii Leadership Council Chairman Ron Heller
Mahalo to cooperating organizations: Business Alliance, Chamber of Commerce, Building Industry Association
Meet the Legislators reception from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Further speakers will be forthcoming. There’s no cost to attend, but reservations are required. Bring along a fellow small-business owner, even if he or she is not an NFIB member. You can make your reservation by email with NFIB Member Support Manager Stacy Jenkins, or by phoning her at 866-307-2846.
