We are a group of small business owners that met since 2004.
OSBRL was inspired by a group of Oregon small business owners who recognized a need to enhance small business participation in community affairs. Small businesses are primary contributors to economic and social stability throughout Oregon. However, they are often passed over when policy issues are being considered. Elected officials and government agency heads continue to focus attention and resources on larger entities and projects. They often fail to consider the long-term effects on our communities and the economic sector which sustains them. OSBRL will partner with others to elect responsible leadership and to create working frameworks beneficial to small business and its role in community development.
