Advisory Group

The Advisory Group is a collection of small business executives, interested in participating in the solutions development and the legislative reform process, who serve as a sounding board for NaFCA, participating in prioritization of issues to be addressed at the Solutions Summits. The Advisory Group has the flexibility of organizing subcommittees to focus on any specific issue, to identify experts to support solutions development and may interface with officials of the executive and legislative branch of government.

Advisory Group positions are awarded to individuals of professed business acumen on an honorary basis, as strictly volunteer, unpaid positions. The Group meets quarterly and on an as needed basis.
