Public Policy Committee

The Public Policy Committee is responsible for the education, advocacy and action of public policy  issues impacting chapter members and women business owners throughout Delaware.  In addition, the committee oversees the communication of NAWBO's public policy positions and activities and the coordination of all legislative visits by chapter members.  It also coordinates chapter relations with local and regional political and public policy leaders and encourages their participation in chapter meetings.

NAWBO Delaware’s Public Policy committee currently participates on the Governor appointed Supplier Diversity Council and as advisor to legislative members of the Small Business Caucus.  A minimum of one public policy event is planned each year for chapter members which may include visits and/or roundtable discussions with local, state and/or federal representatives.

Current Public Policy Issues

Issues currently impacting Delaware NAWBO members include:

  • State procurement supplier diversity initiatives per Executive Order #14;
  • The recently passed federal Small Business Act which authorizes contracting officers to specifically limit, or set aside, certain requirements for compensation solely amongst women-owned small businesses or economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses;
  • Impact of Healthcare Reform legislation on small business, specifically the onerous and burdensome 1099 tax reporting requirement starting 2012; and
  • Access to capital ... Especially at a time when lending is needed to boost the economy.
