The U.S. Small Business Administration seeks member nominations from veteran-owned small businesses and veterans service organizations to serve on the Advisory Committee on Veterans Business Affairs (ACVBA).

Public Law 106-50, the Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999, established the ACVBA to serve as an independent source of advice and policy recommendations to the SBA Administrator, the Associate Administrator for SBA's Office of Veterans Business Development, Congress, the President, and other U.S. policymakers.

Committee members meet quarterly to address the current state of veteran-owned small businesses and inform the public on progress made toward advancing veteran entrepreneurship opportunities.

Eligible applicants must complete, scan, and email SBA Form 898 and current biography with stated political affiliation to veteransbusiness@sba.gov by 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 16. Please read the Federal Register Notice for additional submission information and guidelines.

The SBA Administrator will appoint individuals to serve on the ACVBA for a period of three years. Additional information about the ACVBA is located here. The next Committee meeting is Dec. 3, 2020, and is open to the public. Details will be shared with the public in advance of the meeting.
