SBA's National Ombudsman Brian Castro will host a conversation with Wichita area small business owners, and other representatives of the small business community. The National Ombudsman holds Regulatory Fairness roundtables and forums across the country to give small business owners a means to comment on unfair enforcement actions, government audits, and excessive fines or regulations. The Ombudsman directs specific issues raised by participants to the appropriate federal agency for a high-level fairness review, and works across government to address those concerns, reduce regulatory burdens, and help small businesses grow. WHEN: Wednesday, August 13, 2014 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. WHERE: Kansas Leadership Center 325 E Douglas Avenue Wichita, KS 67202. All members of the small business community, trade organizations, chambers of commerce, and media are invited to attend. Those wishing to report a federal regulatory concern confidentially will have the opportunity to do so privately at the forum. RSVP (encouraged but not required) to Michael Aumack at 316-269-6275 or by email to michael.aumack@sba.gov by Friday, August 1, 2014.
