Want to be a Small-Business Leader?

NFIB News Release

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a small-business leader, now is the time to act. NFIB is recruiting members to serve on its Hawaii state Leadership Council.

The purpose of NFIB’s state Leadership Council is to give advice on future actions within the framework of the NFIB mission statement on behalf of the membership statewide. The Leadership Council works directly with NFIB staff. Members can help NFIB staff in several areas, including:

  • Be available to testify on small-business issues during the legislative session
  • Write, sign, and submit letters to the editor and guest editorials
  • Provide real-life examples of the effects a policy will have on their business
  • Provide timely input/feedback to the state director on issues that arise in the Legislature
  • Assist with the political process
  • Help grow the NFIB clout

NFIB Staff will provide talking points, briefing information, and draft guest editorials and letters as needed. All requests will be directed by the appropriate NFIB staff member.

Leadership Council terms begin with two years’ service. If you are ready to be more involved with NFIB, contact Member Support Manager Stacy Jenkins for more details by email here or by phoning her at 866-307-2846.
