Onega Ulanova, LA New Product Development Team (LA NPDT) based in Shreveport, LA was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Mrs. Ulanova, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“As a small-business owner, I daily see the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Mrs. Ulanova, “Joining NSBA’s Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most – the Congress.”
Onega Ulanova is a co-founder of LA NPDT and a founder of her own OKGlobal marketing agency for oil and gas companies. Her background includes MS in Engineering and Technology Management, years of experience as a Lead Auditor at the American Petroleum Institute, and as an expert in Quality Management Systems, to name a few.
Mrs. Ulanova joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of her efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small businesses, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small business. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.
“I am proud to have Onega Ulanova as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “She came to us highly recommended and I look forward to our coordinated efforts for years to come.”
