NEWS | NSBA Past Chair Appointed to SBA Fairness Board

Congrats to Marilyn and her continued success in supporting small business!

The SBA recently held a Regulatory Fairness Board Hearing.


Convening for the first time since 2020, 17 new members joined 20 current members of the Board, including NSBA Past Chair, Marilyn Landis.


During the meeting, members — small business owners, operators or officers — engaged in discussion and shared concerns with SBA Administrator Guzman, Deputy SBA Administrator Dilawar Syed, and agency leaders related to matters of federal regulatory issues for small businesses.


Bringing diverse experiences, perspectives and business backgrounds to advance regulatory fairness, Board members advise the National Ombudsman and Assistant Administrator for Regulatory Enforcement Fairness on small business matters related to federal regulatory enforcement actions and report instances of unfair, excessive enforcement actions taken by federal regulators. 

Appointment terms are set for three years. Members of the advisory committee do not receive a salary, nor are they eligible to officially represent the SBA, and a complete list of this year’s Board can be found here.
