Advocacy is an independent agency within the federal government tasked with being the regulatory watchdog for small businesses in the federal rule making process.
- Bruce Lundegren, Assistant Chief Counsel for Safety, Transportation and Security
- Charles Maresca, Director of Interagency Affairs

The panel wishes to introduce who they are, what they do, as well as to have a dialogue with local small businesses about what regulations they find to be overly burdensome and offer an opportunity for them to voice their concerns.
We will also have our Early Bird Drawing, where one lucky yellow ticket holder will be drawn and win $1500 courtesy of MAC Federal Credit Union.
