Office of Advocacy to Host Regulatory Reform Roundtable for Small Business in Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, Sept. 13, the Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business Administration will host a Regulatory Reform Roundtable in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. The event will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, 40 Civic Center Plaza.

The purpose of this event is to gain valuable insight into which specific federal regulatory burdens present the biggest barriers to small business growth. With these recommendations, Advocacy can better assist federal agencies in complying with President Trump’s directives to reduce burdensome regulations. Additionally, information compiled from this roundtable and others will help Advocacy generate a report informing Congress and the public of the top regulatory issues for small businesses.  

“The Office of Advocacy plays a crucial role in supporting our nation’s small businesses,” said Major L. Clark III, Acting Chief Counsel for Advocacy. “Holding these regional roundtables to hear concerns directly from small business owners is a key component in our efforts to help lessen the heavy regulatory burden on small business.”

This event is free and open to the public. Interested parties may register at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sba-office-of-advocacy-regional-regulatory-roundtable-poughkeepsie-ny-tickets-48896084505
