With National Small Business Week approaching next month, the SBA is getting prepared to celebrate. From May 18th to 20th in Washington D.C., the SBA will be hosting a variety of events under the theme, “Empowering Entrepreneurs.” It will also mark the 58th anniversary for the SBA, and the 48th anniversary for the creation of National Small Business Week in the United States.
More than 100 outstanding small business owners from across the country will receive awards while gathering for three days at the cityâ€™s Mandarin Oriental Hotel. They will meet with top administration officials, congressional representatives and national business leaders. The highlight of the celebration will be the announcement of the National Small Business Person of the Year.
Men and women also will be recognized for their involvement in disaster recovery, government contracting, and their support for small businesses and entrepreneurship, and awards will be presented to SBA partners in financial and entrepreneurial development, including the yearâ€™s top SCORE Chapter, Small Business Development Center and Womenâ€™s Business Center.
Interested parties can register online. The event will also be webcast live at the web site.
