Local Business Owner Jeff Wasden Named to NSBA Board
Denver, CO -- Colorado Business Roundtable (COBRT) announced today that its president Jeff Wasden was recently elected to serve on the Board of Trustees for the National Small Business Association (NSBA). NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization, and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis.
Wasden, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“As small-business owners, we face many significant challenges,” stated Wasden, “But there is no other place I’d rather be. I look forward to working with NSBA as we urge Congress and the administration to ease the small-business burden and support pro-small-business policies.”
This is Wasden’s second time serving in an executive role for NSBA. He originally served on their national leadership council representing Colorado’s sixth district through the family business he co-owns.
Wasden attended his first NSBA Board of Trustees meeting this week in Washington, D.C. where he discussed critical issues facing small business, namely tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small business, and much more. The NSBA Board of Trustees also met with the Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy’s Director of the Office of Economic Research, Janemarie Mulvey, Ph.D. Mulvey to discuss small-business finance.
“I am proud to work with such an exemplary group of leaders who have made small-business advocacy a top priority,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “Wasden came to us highly recommended and I look forward to his activism and leadership for years to come.
