Local Business Owner Vanessa Dodds Named to NSBA Leadership Council

Pittsburgh, PA – Vanessa Dodds of Connections 4 Success in Pittsburgh 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. Dodds, 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.

“As a small-business owner, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Dodds, “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.”

Vanessa Dodds is a business strategy, professional development, and workplace culture expert with over a fifteen years’ expertise and experience across the corporate and small businesses, the trades, public sector, and nonprofit industries. She is honored to have been entrusted as the District 7300 Rotary E-Club president for two consecutive terms. Also, Dodds has had the distinct pleasure of being the committee chair and speaker for the 2018 Rotary District 7300 Leadership and Ethics Symposium.

Dodds joined the 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 Vanessa Dodds as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “She came to us highly recommended and I look forward our coordinated efforts for years to come.”
