Marisol Buchanan, CEO of Premikati, located in Indianapolis, IN was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization, and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Buchanan, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C. Additionally, Buchanan is a Council Member for the NSBA Technology, Economic Development, and Health and Human Resources Committees.
“As a small-business owner, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Buchanan. “Joining NSBA’s Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most: Congress.”
As a WBENC certified, woman-owned small business operator and owner, Buchanan has more than 18 years of leadership and governance management experience. She is an active member of the National Association of Woman Business Owners, Women and Hi Tech, and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Buchanan volunteers her time to multiple community organizations to maximize the voice of small business owners.
Ms. Buchanan joined her NSBA Leadership Council as part of her efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small business, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small business. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.
“I am proud to have Marisol as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “She came to us highly recommended and I look forward to our coordinated efforts for years to come.”
