Exporting Profile Questionnaire

Dear Small-Business Owner:

Thank you for taking a few moments to tell the Small Business Exporters Association and National Small Business Association a little more about what exporting means for your business. As Congress debates trade policy and leaders negotiate trade agreements, we want to ensure small exporters voices are heard, and your personal exporting story can be incredibly impactful. NSBA and SBEA will share your profile with lawmakers and also will post them on our website in order to enhance the collective understanding of what it means to be a small- or mid-sized exporter in the U.S. today.

Please complete the questions below and email this form along with pictures of you and your business to jmilanese@sbea.org.
