“Our staff and volunteer leaders have worked very hard to have develop innovative products and services that meet the needs of small business owners in this tough economy,” says SBAM’s President and CEO Rob Fowler. “Small business owners have responded by joining our cause in record numbers. We appreciate their ongoing support for our efforts to promote entrepreneurship, leverage buying power and engage in political advocacy.”
This spring, a survey conducted by Denno Noor Research for The Rossman Group and The Perricone Group found that in the minds of southeast Michigan votes, SBAM is the most trusted business organization to help improve Michigan‘s economy. “Small business owners in southeast Michigan and all across the state have shown with their dues dollars that they trust SBAM to help propel a new economic direction for Michigan,” says Fowler.
