Small Business Administration: Atlanta Regulatory Reform Roundtable

A representative from HCAOA Georgia is planning to attend the Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy Regulatory Roundtable scheduled for Tuesday, April 10 in Atlanta, GA.

With these recommendations, Advocacy can better assist federal agencies in complying with President Trump’s directives to reduce burdensome regulations. Additionally, information compiled from this roundtable and others will help Advocacy generate a new report informing Congress and the public of the top regulatory issues for small businesses.
If you are interested in attending, please see the details below.
Date:  Tuesday, April 10
Time:  8:30 am - 4:30 pm Eastern
Location:  GTRI Conference Center at 250 14th Street, NW, Atlanta, GA 30318

Previous Meetings


On Nov. 30, 2017 HCAOA Georgia held a successful chapter meeting featuring guest speaker, Greg Mazza of Home Care Breakthrough. The chapter met at the Georgian Terrace Hotel and had over 40 attendees. The meeting focused on two main subjects: proposed legislation to increase the minimum wage and a presentation by Greg Mazza. Founder of Home Care Breakthrough Solutions, Mazza presented business development strategies to the group. He provided valuable insight, discussing tips and tricks of the trade to help home care providers expand their business in 2018.

HCAOA Georgia lobbyist, Rusty Paul also discussed legislative issues facing home care providers in Georgia. Paul discussed how the U.S. Department of Labor is interested in hearing more about the Companion Care Exemption and efforts to revisit that regulation (see related story in Congressional Update). Eddie Grogan, HCAOA Georgia Cahir, emphasized how the chapter was instrumental in supporting state legislation that was passed and signed by the Governor, preventing municipalities from raising the minimum wage within the state. This legislation has created a level playing field for all Georgia providers, in the challenge to control any competitive pressure. Grogan reminded the group that there are three kinds of people in the world: those that make things happen, those that watch things happen and those that wonder “what just happened?” He urged nonmembers in attendance to join HCAOA Georgia and avoid becoming those that wonder what happened, as the chapter is a group of home care providers that are making things happen in Georgia.
