President Trump has made regulatory reform a center piece of his agenda and recently signed two executive orders addressing the regulatory burden faced by the private sector. The. U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy is hosting a series of roundtables seeking input. The purpose of each roundtable is to hear directly from local small businesses about what regulations concern them. This will be an opportunity for small business leaders to educate Advocacy and federal agencies through first-hand accounts of how federal regulations impact their small business. Representatives of federal agencies will be on hand the entire day. The information gathered at these roundtables will be utilized to inform agencies, Congress and the public on what specific regulations can be modified or removed to help small businesses.

These events are open to anyone but registration is required.
