Mike Schreurs, Chairman and Chief Strategist at Strategic America, has been elected to serve on the Board of Trustees for the National Small Business Association (NSBA). NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization, and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Schreurs, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins 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 understand the significant challenges that we face and the importance of coming together to advocate for small businesses,” stated Schreurs. “This is an opportunity for me to work with NSBA as we urge Congress and the administration to ease the small-business burden and support pro-small-business policies.”
Schreurs founded Strategic America in 1980 and is primarily responsible for setting the company’s strategic direction. His interest in studying and adapting innovative business strategies and models to challenging issues in changing times has resulted in unique success over the agency’s 40 year history. Over the length of his career, Schreurs has served in various leadership positions in public broadcasting, chamber of commerce organizations, coalitions, campaigns and civic and charitable causes.
Schreurs has been active with NSBA for several years and has been an exemplary representative of small business issues in Central Iowa. In addition to the leadership role with NSBA, Schreurs is active in various local and regional organizations and has been an outspoken advocate for small-business issues with his elected officials.
Schreurs joins a diverse group of small-business leaders on the NSBA 2020 Board, led by long-time advocate Marc Amato of Walco Electric Company in Providence, Rhode Island.
“I am proud to work with such an exemplary group of leaders who have made small-business advocacy a top priority,” stated NSBA Chair Marc Amato. “Schreurs came to us highly recommended and I look forward to his activism and leadership for years to come.”
