From The ASBC Chief Visionary:
In Brief

The mission...
Stay focused on it.

Small businesses in the government sector are subject to constant distractions and diversions which only serve to delay you from reaching your objectives.

These distractions show up as recent rulings and news headlines that may dishearten you, and newly discovered "resources" which appear to have your best interests in mind, but are solely focused on personal gain.

We're proud of what our Members and Friends say about us and are committed to helping our Members do what it takes to get the job done. For Government, that means helping you get the information you need to identify the best industry partners, and for Industry, it means helping you attain a position which suits your capabilities and goals.

Stay focused and stay diligent.
