Association Touts Exciting Changes To Encourage Successful Entrepreneurship In Today’s Tough Economy
Washington, D.C., March 9, 2011 – In today’s difficult economy, the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading nonprofit association representing America’s smallest businesses, is doing its part to support entrepreneurship with the launch of a new annual membership and redesigned website (www.NASE.org), offering a more affordable and comprehensive suite of resources and services. 
“The NASE is constantly looking for ways we can become a more vibrant partner with America’s self-employed,” said NASE President Robert Hughes. “Our focus has been re-aligned to support those examining self-employment as a viable career option as well as current business owners who want to continue to grow and create jobs in this country.”

The NASE has utilized the knowledge gained by working for over 30 years with small businesses to transform its membership offering and the NASE.org online user experience to focus on three key areas:  educational resources, business benefits and a seat at the table for the self employed in Washington D.C.

The NASE recognizes that most individuals who work for themselves are not legal experts, nor do they have an HR department or CPAs on staff. As their partner, the NASE’s new annual membership provides access to key experts and informational resources that can help prospective and existing entrepreneurs start, manage and grow their business. 

The redesigned website allows entrepreneurs to find the timely and accurate information they need, with ease. Educational material is offered in a variety of formats such as articles, podcasts and webinars.  Additionally, the new annual membership offers individuals access to an array of business benefits providing a one-stop shop for business owners.

With issues like the economy, health care and taxes being taken up by our policymakers on Capitol Hill, the NASE also provides the self-employed with a seat at the table. The Association tirelessly works to ensure that the over 21 million self-employed Americans are represented and lawmakers focus on helping, not hurting the bottom line of this important sector of our economy.

“Policy, not politics, is what drives the NASE,” commented Executive Director Kristie Arslan. “Regardless of whether you are a business of one or have 100 employees, your contributions to our economy matter and your voice should be heard. Being a member of the NASE allows you the opportunity to tell your story.”
