NSBA Leadership Council members work on a broad variety of policy issues and coordinate their legislative focus within the policy committees of the National Small Business Association. Every two years, at the beginning of a new Congress, NSBA holds the Small Business Congress where small-business owners discuss, debate and the vote on our Priority Issues.
