This widely attended event complies with House and Senate ethics rules.
The USBIC was founded in 1933 to represent the concerns of America’s small and medium-sized domestic producers. Member companies are typically family-owned or privately held, mostly in the manufacturing sector. This membership composition has given the USBIC an outlook on issues rooted in Main Street America rather than Wall St. globalism. Many other national business groups are dominated by multinational corporations with global agendas and dwindling national loyalties.
