Local Nonprofit Executive Michelle Simmons Named to NSBA Leadership Council
Germantown, PA – Rev. Dr. Michelle Simmons, Founder & CEO of Why Not Prosper, Philadelphia, PA was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization, and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Simmons, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“As the operator of a nonprofit advocating criminal justice reform, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Simmons. “Joining NSBA’s Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective message to the people that need to hear it most: Congress.”
Simmons joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of her efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small business, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small business. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.
