Board of Directors

Board of Directors

SBAM is a non-profit organization that is governed by an elected Board of Directors, who are also members. Additionally, SBAM is guided by an extensive network of volunteer committees.

SBAM's Board of Directors are small business owners just like you, meaning SBAM is truly run with the interests of small business at heart without the influence and deep pockets of big businesses.
