Chamber producing roundtable with SBA
The local chamber of commerce will host a forum this week with the Small Business Administration on federal regulatory challenges.
C. Natalie Lui Duncan will represent the SBA’s Office of the National Ombudsman at a Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Roundtable from 10-11:30 a.m. on Sept. 22 at the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce in Grand Rapids, at 111 Pearl St. NW.
Lui Duncan, who is acting national ombudsman and assistant administrator for regulatory enforcement fairness at the SBA, will hear from small business owners at the event.
Her goal is to enable business owners to provide input on regulatory fairness issues affecting their businesses and discuss ways the federal government can help them save time and money by resolving complex regulatory compliance and enforcement issues.
Attendees will also learn about resources and assistance available through the SBA, the Office of the National Ombudsman and other federal agencies.
The event is free, but space is limited. Those interested in attending may RSVP online.
