Altimese Dees of The Real Estate Gallery of Georgia 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. Dees, 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 see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation," stated Dees. "Joining NSBA's Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most: Congress."

A 1991 graduate of the University of Georgia and a 2021 Project REAP Fellow, Altimese Dees is Broker/ Chief Executive Officer for The Real Estate Gallery of Georgia, headquartered in Atlanta, Ga. After working for a Fortune 500 corporation as a marketing project manager for seven years, Altimese was layed off from her position in 2002, then decided to start a career in real estate. She has been an independent business owner for almost 20 years.

Dees joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of her efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small business, 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 Altimese Dees 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."
