Councils

NSBA membership comes with many benefits and for a nominal yearly fee those benefits can be greatly enhanced by joining one of NSBA’s Councils. There is no better way to compliment your NSBA membership, expand your business network, and gain access to valuable resources than joining one or more of the following councils.


  • The Small Business Exporters Association
  • The Small Business Exporters Association (SBEA) serves as the international trade arm of NSBA. Membership within SBEA includes governmental advocacy on behalf of all small exporters, and on behalf of individual member companies that encounter government difficulties as they export; networking opportunities with other small and medium-sized US companies involved in exporting; and member benefits designed to save your company money as you export.
  • Small Business Technology Council
  • The Small Business Technology Council (SBTC) is involved in educational activities which include conferences and seminars on government procurement and other education activities for small business, government officials and officials of large companies. SBTC encourages the exchanges of ideas and information on improving the transitioning of research and development (R&D) and technology into the commercial marketplace.
