The upcoming Central Florida NVSBC Chapter meeting will be OCtober 10, 2019, 5:30 pm at The Centre Club in Tampa, FL

Our Special Guest speaker U.S. Representative Ross Spano (FL), Congressman for Florida’s 15th Congressional District. Congressman Spano will discuss issues specific to VOSB and SDVOSB small businesses as well as current and future initiatives to help our veteran community.

Elected in November 2018 and sworn in to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2019 to represent Florida’s 15th Congressional District, Congressman Spano is a Hillsborough County native and graduate of Brandon High School.

After working his way through both undergraduate and law school, he spent most of his career as a shareholder of his own law practice representing individuals and small businesses in Hillsborough County. In 2012, he felt called into politics and successfully ran to represent Florida’s 59th district in the Florida House of Representatives. He served in the Florida legislature for three terms, during which he stood as a strong advocate for human trafficking victims and against human traffickers. He also strongly believes in the right to life, supporting our veterans, the 2nd Amendment, supporting small business, and limited government.
