Dear Small Business Representatives:

The Office of Advocacy of the Small Business Administration invites you to a Small Business Regional Roundtable to discuss regulatory concerns, more specifically labor and employment issues affecting small businesses. For this roundtable, we have also invited officials from the Department of Labor and the Small Business Administration. 


Advocacy is an independent voice for small business within the federal government, the watchdog for the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) and the source of small business statistics.  Advocacy advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, the federal agencies, the federal courts and state policy makers. 


Advocacy takes its direction from small businesses and hosts roundtables to receive input on what areas are of greatest importance. We are currently in the process of finalizing the agenda for the meeting, so please let me know if there are any issues you would like to discuss.  A final agenda for the roundtable will be circulated prior to the meeting.

Please RSVP by reply email if you plan to attend the meeting to: or call at 202-619-0312.  Please RSVP as soon as possible, as space is extremely limited. 


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or require additional information.
