About the Federal Executive Board


The Federal Executive Boards (FEBs), established by Presidential Directive in 1961, are a forum for communication and collaboration among federal agencies outside of Washington, DC. The need for effective coordination among the field activities of federal departments and agencies was then, and is still, very clear. Approximately 85 percent of all federal employees work outside the National Capital Region. Federal programs have their impact largely through the actions of the field representatives of the departments and agencies. In addition, federal representatives are the principal contact with the federal government for the citizens of the United States. The National network of 28 FEBs, located in areas of significant federal populations, serves as the cornerstone for strategic partnering in government.

 About the U.S. Small Business Administration


The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) was created in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns, to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation. We recognize that small business is critical to our economic recovery and strength, to building America's future, and to helping the United States compete in today's global marketplace. Although SBA has grown and evolved in the years since it was established in 1953, the bottom line mission remains the same. The SBA helps Americans start, build and grow businesses. Through an extensive network of field offices and partnerships with public and private organizations, SBA delivers its services to people throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam.
