SBA official to hear complaints
CONCORD — Small business owners, representatives of local economic development organizations and trade groups, and community leaders are invited to join the U.S. Small Business Administration's National Ombudsman Brian Castro to discuss federal regulatory issues impacting small businesses on Friday, Sept. 13, at the New Hampshire Education Assistance Foundation Network Organization (NHHEAF) in Concord.
The forum will begin at 10 a.m. at the NHHEAF's building located at 3 Barrell Court, and is open to the public. This event will give attendees a chance to openly voice their concerns about regulatory enforcement, excessive fines, retaliation, disproportionately burdensome regulations and other regulatory issues involving federal agencies.
Comments and concerns raised at the regulatory fairness forum will be directed to the appropriate federal agency for a fairness review in an effort to reduce undue regulatory burdens, while helping small businesses succeed.
This event is also an opportunity for the small business community to come away with a better understanding of the resources available to small business owners and entrepreneurs through the Office of the National Ombudsman.
To register, contact José Méndez at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 202-205-6178 before the meeting. Visit www.sba.gov/ombudsman for more information.
