Beacon CEO Testifies Before Congress

December 09, 2015
Ms. Mackey, CEO of Beacon, had the privilege of providing testimony at the House Small Business Committee's Hearing Supporting Success: Empowering Small Business Advocates

From her prepared testimony:
“Unfortunately, the level playing field is as difficult to create as it is important to maintain for the well-being of the government contracting ecosystem. Fortunately for those of us that advocate for Small Business interests, we have strong advocates like this Committee. Your efforts in the recent legislation regarding Small Business Federal Contracting in the Fiscal Year 2016 National Defense Authorization Act demonstrates once again that Small Businesses can depend on Congress to work for a fair and healthy acquisition system.”

Her video testimony can be found here.  In a response to a question about outreach from Representative Velasquez (D-NY):
"So many of us as Small Business Owners find our education in our Industrial Associations.  So I would recommend to you that you reach out to the Industry Associations."
