AAHOA Chair Vinay Patel recently sent a letter to the U.S Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship Chairman Ben Cardin and Ranking Member Rand Paul in support of Dilawar Syed's nomination as the next Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration:

Respectfully, for far too long this position has remained vacant and there are many pressing issues that need to be addressed by the SBA.
