SBA's National Ombudsman Brian Castro will host a conversation with Winfield/Ark City 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: Tuesday, August 12, 2014 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. WHERE: Winfield Area Chamber of Commerce, 123 E 9th Avenue Winfield, KS 67156.

Those wishing to report a federal regulatory concern confidentially will have the opportunity to do so privately at the forum. Co-hosted by the Arkansas City and Winfield Chambers of Commerce and Cowley First.
