Leadership | Advocacy | Small Business Association of Michigan



SBAM utilizes the combined expertise of its Legislative Action Council (LAC) to make recommendations to the SBAM Board of Directors with regard to SBAM’s policy positions.  These positions are based on what is best for Michigan’s small businesses.  SBAM's four registered lobbyists carry out the direction of the LAC and the Board in order to effect good policy procedures on behalf of SBAM members.
