The uncertainty in Washington is likely top of mind to your members. From proposals on reforming the tax code, access to capital, deregulation and trade deals, to employer issues around healthcare, a lot or a little could change for your members. Uncertainty in these areas is driven not only by politics, but also technology and automation. Yet opportunities abound within this chaotic time.

KAREN MILLS, former Cabinet Member and Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (2009- 2013), and current faculty member at Harvard Business School, is an expert on these issues and how they can impact local businesses and supply chains. She’s renowned and respected for her insights on strengthening local economies, fintech and access to capital, and perhaps most importantly, she is a vocal and authentic champion of small business as the engine of the U.S. economy.

Watch Mill's recent talk at Harvard Business School:
"Leading Through Uncertain Times" 
"I asked Karen to lead the Small Business Administration because I knew she had the skills and experience to help America's small businesses recover from the worst economic crisis in generations and that's exactly what she's done. She has played a leading role in my Administration's efforts to support start-ups and entrepreneurs."
- President Barack Obama

Mills has shared invaluable insights addressing groups at American Express, The Federal Reserve Bank, Money 20/20, The Federation of Small Business, Eli Lily, The City Club of Cleveland, LendIt, SourceMedia, and more.
