The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) is a lobbying organization with offices in Washington, D.C. and in all 50 state capitals. NFIB is a nonpartisan, nonprofit association of 350,000 small business owners across the country.[1]

NFIB's lobbying efforts are focused on the impact of current and proposed legislation on small and independent businesses, and professional practices at all levels of government, but primarily at the federal and state levels.[1]

History

NFIB was founded by Wilson Harder in 1943 and maintained its headquarters in San Mateo, California, until 1992 when it was re-located to Nashville, Tennessee.[1]

Leadership

Dan Danner is the current president and CEO of NFIB. For a full list of national leadership, click here.

Issues

Beginning in its earliest history, NFIB's positions were determined by a polling of its membership. Periodic ballots (referred to as Mandates) were mailed to its members who then had an opportunity to vote their opinions on the questions presented. Once the votes were tallied, the majority position became NFIB's position.[2]

The following is a partial list of issues that NFIB has taken a position on. For a complete list, click here
