With the help of more than 40 of the world’s largest and most respected companies, Business Forward is making it easier for tens of thousands of business leaders from across America to advise Washington on how to create jobs and accelerate our economic recovery. Together, we have organized hundreds of local briefings with more than 400 senior Administration officials, Members of Congress, mayors and governors.
In 2012, we also brought more than 2,000 business leaders to the White House to brief the President's economic advisors. Business leaders who have participated in our briefings have seen their suggestions implemented in the Affordable Care Act, the Jobs Act, three trade agreements and every one of the President's budgets. Many have also shared their recommendations with their representatives in Congress and through op-eds and interviews with local media.
Ninety-eight out of 100 business leaders who have participated in a Business Forward briefing would be interested in participating in another one.
