The U.S. Small Business Administration is seeking nominations from veteran-owned small businesses and veterans service organizations to serve on the agency’s Advisory Committee on Veterans Business Affairs.

The committee was established by law more than 20 years ago to provide independent advice and policy recommendations to the SBA administrator, the associate administrator for the agency’s Office of Veterans Business Development, as well as Congress, the president, and other U.S. policymakers.

The committee meets four times a year to address the state of veteran-owned small businesses and inform the public on progress made toward advancing veteran entrepreneurship opportunities.

Eligible applicants must complete, scan, and email this form and current biography with stated political affiliation to veteransbusiness@sba.gov by Nov. 16, 2020.

Please read the federal register notice for additional submission information and guidelines.

The SBA administrator appoints members to serve on the committee for three years.

The next committee meeting on Dec. 3 is open to the public. Details will be released before the meeting.
