NSBA’s 2017 Washington Presentation

Registration is now open for NSBA’s 2017 Washington Presentation on June 19-20 in Washington, D.C. Space is limited for many of the activities, so please register soon. The early-bird discount, which ends May 22 could save registrants up to $100.

The Washington Presentation is NSBA’s annual event where small-business leaders converge in Washington, D.C. to lobby their Senators and Representatives on the important issues facing America’s small businesses.

Kicking-off the event on Monday will be the Lew Shattuck Small Business Advocate of the Year Award luncheon. Following the luncheon, the NSBA delegation will then talk policy in a briefing on our 2017 priority issues and a primer on lobbying Members of Congress. We also expect to hear from Administration Officials as part of our White House Briefing.

Following the briefings, the NSBA delegation will take part in a reception and networking activities at a popular venue in the heart of D.C. to close out the day.

On Tuesday, the NSBA delegation will head to Capitol Hill for the Congressional Breakfast, where we will hear from various Senators and Representatives. Following the breakfast, attendees will spread out on Capitol Hill to attend meetings scheduled by NSBA with their Members of Congress.

The Washington Presentation will be held at the Loews Madison Hotel located at 1177 15th St., NW, in downtown Washington, D.C., just blocks from the White House.

Don’t forget to register soon – space is very limited!
