Why You Should Join the Small Business Institute Directors' Association (SBIDA)


  • Ronald G. Cook Rider University Vice President Marketing & Membership, SBIDA


The Small Business Directors' Association (SBIDA) is a non-profit professional association whose mission is to strengthen the small business/entrepreneurship sector of the free enterprise system, provide entrepreneurship education, and support economic development and diversification  through teaching, consulting, training, and field research.

I won't go into great detail about SBIDA's history (over 25 years old), its impact on small businesses through its Small Business Institute'" program (Matthews, 1998), or its impact on literally thousands of students (for further information about these topics, please visit our web site: www .sbida.org). Instead, I want to speak to our future.
