Governor’s Business Ombudsman to Host Small Business Roundtable

BALTIMORE, MD — Maryland’s Business Ombudsman Roger Campos invites small business owners, representatives of local economic development organizations, trade groups, and community leaders to join him and the U.S. Small Business Administration’s National Ombudsman Brian Castro in Baltimore on Thursday, June 18, to discuss state and federal issues impacting small businesses.

“This roundtable gives business owners an opportunity to better understand their business’ relationship with both the state and federal government,” Campos said. “My responsibility is to resolve problems encountered by businesses interacting with state agencies and ensure that state government is responsive to the needs of business owners.”

Business owners in Maryland will have an opportunity to provide input on issues affecting their business interactions with the state. SBA National Ombudsman Brian Castro will join the Maryland ombudsman along with SBA Regional Administrator Natalia Olson to learn more about local resources and assistance supporting small business success.

Business owners will also have an opportunity to learn how both Maryland and the SBA’s Office of the National Ombudsman can help small businesses save time and money in resolving difficult business issues with the state and federal government.

To register for this event, email Brian.Paxton@maryland.gov, or call (410) 260-6116 no later than noon on Wednesday, June 17.
