WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Small Business Administration's Interagency Task Force on Veterans Small Business Development and Advisory Committee on Veterans Business Affairs will hold public meetings on March 4 and 5 respectively at SBA headquarters in Washington, D.C.  The meetings will also be accessible via teleconference and webinar.



Fran Perez-Wilhite is the newly appointed ACVBA chairwoman. She was chosen by committee members to lead the ACVBA in its mission to support veteran business affairs and provide advice and policy recommendations to the SBA Administrator.  A former U.S. Army officer, Perez-Wilhite is a business developer with the North Carolina Military Business Center in Charlotte. 



"We're looking forward to working with Fran to bring a new perspective and leadership to our discussion," said Larry Stubblefield, Associate Administrator for the Office of Veterans Business Development. "The efforts of both committees continue to positively influence SBA's veteran programs and related policy decisions. I look forward to working with Fran, the ACVBA, and IATF members during these quarterly meetings."



The meetings will be held at SBA Headquarters, 409 3rd Street SW, Washington D.C., 20416. The main entrance is under construction, so use the D Street entrance and proceed to the security desk.
