May: Celebrate Small Business Month
Small businesses are the backbone of the United States economy and the lifeblood of many local economies. According to a 2020 study by the U.S. Small Business Administration, there are 31.7 million small businesses in the United States. These small businesses and entrepreneurs play a pivotal role in strengthening national and neighborhood job markets. Many small businesses continue to be challenged by the economic, social, and public health challenges related to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the many hardships, small businesses exhibited resiliency and leadership in helping employees and communities navigate these challenges. Every year and especially during the past year, small businesses and their owners continue as the unsung heroes of the American Dream.
Celebrate Small Business Month by giving back to these courageous businesses by sharing resources with your members. It will let them know that you – and all of us – appreciate their hard work and contributions to our quality of life, including our shared environmental as well as economic health.
