Upcoming ASA Webinar: U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of the National Ombudsman

Join us on November 14th, 2024, at Noon Eastern for the presentation, "U.S. Small Business Administration's Office of the National Ombudsman", presented by John Kelly.

If you’re a small business, association, or not-for-profit and are experiencing an issue with an existing federal regulation, you can receive assistance from the Office of the National Ombudsman. They can help resolve regulatory issues with federal agencies, reduce unfair penalties and fines, seek remedies when rules are inconsistently applied, and recover payment for services performed by government contractors.

John Kelly has been with the Small Business Administration for 14 years, first at the SBA’s Washington, DC Metropolitan Area District Office where he served as a Business Opportunity Specialist for the 8(a) Program and assisted small business owners with their business development needs. He then moved to his current role at SBA’s Headquarters, Office of the National Ombudsman, where he assists small business owners that feel they are being negatively affected by federal regulations, excessive audits, and unfair penalties and fines. Prior to that John spent 15 years as a Business Development and Finance Director for the Corporate Office of a national franchisor where he aided small business owners in the capitalization of their start-up or expansion of their small business.
