The Small Business Investor Alliance (SBIA) is non-profit organization dedicated to building and maintaining a strong and profitable Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) industry. SBIA has played a pivotal role in promoting the growth and vitality of the SBIC business sector through representation in Washington and several professional programs.

SBIA cooperates closely with independent business associations to forward the interests of small business at the federal level. A 30-member Board of Governors sets the policies and priorities of the Alliance. SBIA’s activities are managed by five national officers elected from the Board. Chosen annually by their peers, these Governors and officers are active industry executives who represent a variety of SBIC licensees throughout the country.

Locke Lord takes special pride in its working relationship with SBIA. The Firm is a member of SBIA and our attorneys regularly attend SBIA conferences.
