                        There are key business associations, all advocacy groups, that have worked with Small Business School over the years.  Right from the beginning in 1994, the producers turned to the national business associations for nominations and for qualifying businesses to be on the show. 

                        To qualify a business had to be loved by their local community  for their generous spirits and high standards, and they had to be respected in their industry for their leadership.  They were among the givers, not the takers. They  volunteered and shared their insights to make their industry and this world a better place.
