The article, "PBA + SBA = A-OK," in Beauty Launchpad's, December 2007 issue describes how PBA is lobbying to help the salon industry.

"In 2004, the Small Business Administration (SBA) considered changing how the federal government defined a small business, which not only would have resulted in hundreds of salons losing their small-business status, but also would have placed a tremendous record-keeping burden on the thousands of salons that would still qualify as small businesses."

The combined effort of PBA and its members helped convince the SBA that the proposal wasn't in the best interests of the salon industry.

PBA is a great organization. If you don't belong, you should. Check out their website for more information:
