Making Your Voice Heard: How business owners can have an impact on relevant Ohio legislation

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
7:30 a.m. – 9 a.m.
Savage Business & Associates Complex Rm. 2160

Ever struggle with legislative red tape? Or been impacted by over-regulation?

Often it’s the small or family businesses that are impacted hardest by government actions. Thus, an independent voice for small business within the state government is imperative.

At this mini-forum, Brandon Ogden, Director of the Ohio Small Business Council, will talk about what it means to have a voice and how it can reduce current and/or future hurdles.

 The discussion will include:

  • Why you should engage in legislative advocacy
  • Ohio legislative trends in business issues such as healthcare, taxes, regulatory reform, etc.
  • The Common Sense Initiative, what it is and how it can benefit your company
  • A live case study with Lois Rosenberry, owner of Children’s Discovery Center,  demonstrating how she was able to make a difference in her industry

Taking advantage of the resources available gives you a voice to ensure that issues important to your business are understood and considered. The first step is learning how. Please register to attend in person or Webcast live by Thursday, January 19, 2017.
