Lamb Announces 20th Annual Oklahoma Small Business Day

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, April 18, 2018 – Oklahoma Lt. Governor Todd Lamb announced the Twentieth Annual Oklahoma Small Business Day will be held Tuesday, May 1 at the state Capitol. Registration is from 8:30-9:30 a.m. on the second floor rotunda with the program beginning at 9:30 a.m. and ending at 11:00 a.m.

“By traveling to all 77 Oklahoma counties each year, I know firsthand that small businesses are not only the majority of Oklahoma businesses, but also the backbone of Oklahoma’s economy,” Lamb said.  “In order for Oklahoma to prosper economically, we must collectively create a pro-business, anti-regulatory environment in order for our thousands of Oklahoma small businesses to flourish.  Small Business Day provides a wonderful opportunity to showcase Oklahoma’s small employers and their employees to the legislature while allowing legislators a platform to visit one on one with leaders from across the state who represent a multitude of industries.”

The event will feature legislative updates from Speaker of the House Charles McCall and Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Schulz. The Lt. Governor’s Small Business Awards of Excellence will also be awarded.

Small Business Day partners include The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), The State Chamber of Oklahoma, The Tulsa Regional Chamber, The Northwest Chamber, The Oklahoma Business Roundtable and The Oklahoma Association of Career and Technology Education (OKACTE).
