One of the most important benefits The American Small Business Coalition (The ASBC) provides its small business members is exposure to new market opportunities. The ASBCÂs ability to meet the growing demand for this benefit has just been made substantially easier with the addition of Jenkins Hill LLC as one of its strategic partners.
Jenkins Hill is a public affairs and Federal marketing firm based in Dulles, Virginia. Guy J. Timberlake, principal and co-founder of The ASBC explains, ÂJenkins Hill brings an enormous amount of experience and a distinguished list of accomplishments that will provide an incredible amount of benefit to our members.Â
