Change Ourselves: Everybody is a Producer.
There are key business associations, all advocacy groups, that have worked with Small Business School over the years. Right from the beginning in 1994, the producers turned to the national business associations for nominations and for qualifying businesses to be on the show.
To qualify a business had to be loved by their local community for their generous spirits and high standards, and they had to be respected in their industry for their leadership. They were among the givers, not the takers. They volunteered and shared their insights to make their industry and this world a better place.
National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB). From their Mission Statement: "To promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses." The NFIB is the preeminent advocate of free enterprise in America. It is the most knowledgeable and informed small business association in the nation. It is the most effective at enacting legislation in favor of members. It empowers people who believe in the spirit of entrepreneurship.
National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). From their website: "...fighting for a strong future for U.S. manufacturing." NAM is all about taking action to "reduce costs resulting from government policies -- like high taxes, excess regulation, litigation, and rising health and energy costs."
Many more to come...
