Voices from the Field: A Report from the National Women’s Business Council Town Hall Meetings

In March and June 2007, the National Women’s Business Council held two town hall meetings with women business owners in St. Louis, Missouri and in Portland, Oregon. The objective of the meetings was to collect viewpoints and ideas from women business owners that could inform the Council’s policy positions and their future recommendations to government leaders. This report outlines policy issues that are relevant to women business owners and summarizes the content of the town hall meetings as it relates to those policy issues.
