The National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM) says that its CEO, Dr Dean L Bartles, has been appointed to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council.

NSBA is reportedly the US’s oldest small-business advocacy organization and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis.

‘I am honored to be named to the NSBA’s Leadership Council,’ said Dr Bartles. ‘NCDMM manages an extensive Alliance Partner network that includes many small businesses to support our mission of delivering collaborative solutions that enhance US manufacturing and economic competitiveness.’
