May is National Small Business Month and RAM is pleased to once again co-sponsor MA Small Business Day on May 9, at the Parker House in Boston.  Our inaugural event last year was successful in attendance, messaging, and unprecedented activation and coordination of grassroots to ensure that the pro-economy, pro-Main Street message of small businesses are  not ignored by our public  policy leaders.  

In these times of increased payroll mandates, higher healthcare costs, questionable political agendas, and more consumer choices and tools for spending their dollars outside of the Commonwealth, it is more vital than ever that small employers are more focused, cohesive, and louder in our educational efforts.    

In addition to RAM, co-sponsoring organizations include: the National Federation of Independent Businesses, Associated Industries of MA, MA Restaurant Association, MA Food Association, MA Farm Bureau, MA Package Store Association, MA Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, New England Convenience Store & Energy Marketers Association, among others.

We hope you will consider joining us on May 9.  And whether you attend on May 9 or not, please help be a part of our collective industry and small business education efforts, by knowing your legislators, and attending meetings and gatherings with them at your local chamber of commerce.  Rest assured that activists seeking new mandates, restrictions, and costs on your bottom line are working equally hard to get the attention of those we elect to public office. 

It is our collective responsibility to hold our elected officials accountable for sensible economic policies, and to make sure their support of Main Street goes much farther than just a few photo opportunities or Tweets on Small Business Saturday in November.   MA Small Business Day on May 9, and Small Business Month throughout May is an important time to deliver those messages and reminders.
