Arroyo Grande, CA – May 10, 2021

Marilyn Wilson, Managing Partner of WAV Group, Inc, is re-joining the Board of Trustees for the National Small Business Association (NSBA),the nation’s oldest small business advocacy organization. Marilyn will also serve as NSBA’s Chair of the Economic Development Committee. ­­

Wilson was chosen based to her ownership of two highly impactful California based small businesses; and her ongoing commitment to the growth and progress of hundreds of other small businesses through WAV Group, a leading consulting firm, and RE Technology, the number one online source for real estate technology education and information. Wilson has driven extensive advocacy initiatives throughout the real estate industry and technology in promoting legislation that advances the needs of small businesses and their employees. “Small businesses in America deliver 44% of GDP but are among the most underrepresented groups in framing legislation and shaping opportunities for America’s workforce. The NSBA contributes an immeasurable benefit to its members and I am honored to represent their interests,” says Wilson.

“Marilyn was an outstanding contributor to NSBA and delivered many unique perspectives developed through her professional practice. We are thrilled to have her join us once again during a season of unprecedented challenges to businesses across North America,” says ML Mackey, Chair of the NSBA and Co-Founder of Beacon Interactive, a military defense contracting firm.

Wilson will offer in-depth perspectives to the National Small Business Association. The majority of board members reside in the Northeast, thus, her experience as a West Coast small business owner and her experience serving small businesses and technology companies around North America will expand the perspective and help shape priorities for this great organization. Since 99.8% and 3.8 million California entities ­­­­are small businesses, Wilson will be working with NSBA to represent their best interests and advocate for policies to enable business growth and profitability.

WAV Group is excited for their founding partner Marilyn Wilson for rejoining the National Small Business Association Board of Directors. This board lobbies congress for pro-business legislation and fights against legislation that harms small business. Last week, Marilyn led the executive board with a conversation with Pete Buttigieg (Mayor Pete) – United States Secretary of Transportation; it is widely known that congress is working on a massive transportation bill to improve our failing roads and bridges. If there are any suggestions for the NSBA, please reach out to Marilyn ( She is a fierce advocate.
