Oregon’s Office of Small Business Advocacy Releases 2018 Annual Report

SALEM, OR — Today, the Secretary of State Small Business Advocacy Team released their fifth Annual Report. The report provides high-level data regarding concerns and questions raised by businesses and nonprofits about state and local government throughout the 2018 calendar year.

The Small Business Advocates are housed in the Office of Small Business Assistance, part of the Corporations Division of the Office of Secretary of State. Created by the Legislature in 2013 and opened in 2014, the office and its Advocacy Team work toward solutions and finding answers for businesses and nonprofits with zero to 100 employees.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of Oregon’s economy, and we here at the Secretary of State’s office want to do all we can to ensure their success,” said Secretary of State Dennis Richardson. “The Small Business Advocacy Team is one of the most valuable assets the state provides to help small businesses navigate the red tape of starting and maintaining a thriving business.”
