Obama's Stimulus Package and Small Business

By John Jantsch

Intuit CommunityAs part of Intuit’s Small Business United campaign, I am participating in a virtual Small Business Town Hall to discuss the Obama Stimulus Package and what it means to small business owners.

Thursday, March 5, 2009 at 3:00 PM Eastern (Noon Pacific time) – Sign in here

Raymond J. Keating, the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council’s Chief Economist, will walk small business owners through key things they should know about the stimulus and the economy.

I will be joined on a panel to discuss the package and Keating’s remarks by Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and Kelly Spors, small business columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

This is a great way to learn about these important and evolving plans and express your opinions on things like payroll taxes, investment credits and other changes that impact the ability for small businesses to grow.

They are experimenting with a new online platform they call a Town Hall Meeting. Participants can interact with the panel by posing questions in chat or by raising their hand to speak. The entire system is Internet based, no phone, but you must have speakers on your computer to hear and a microphone to speak. If you have a camera you can appear via video as you speak. I’ve tested the system with them several times and it gives a very different feel than typical lecture type conferences. (You can also enter via this Facebook app)
