Michigan Business Network (MBN) began broadcasting July 4th 2011. On this segment from the inaugural broadcast of ‘Michigan Business Beat’ Chris Holman who was serving with the NSBA (National Small Business Association) at the time spoke with long-time NSBA member and board member Lawrence (Larry) S. Nannis of Framingham, Mass. Larry was the Chair of the Board of Trustees for NSBA five years ago. A shareholder with the Needham-based CPA firm, Levine, Katz, Nannis + Solomon, PC, Nannis brought a wealth of expertise in taxation and emerging technology issues to NSBA throughout his tenure, and demonstrated time and again an unflagging commitment to the small-business community. The pair discuss some of the key issues for small business at that time.
