WPE President Named to NSBA Leadership Council

Doug Feterl, P.E., President of West Plains Engineering, 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. Feterl, 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 President, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Feterl. “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.”

Feterl has been with West Plains Engineering since 1991 and previously served as the office manager in Rapid City. A lifelong resident of Wyoming and South Dakota, he is heavily involved in the local business community and has developed strong relationships with leaders in government and the construction industry.

Feterl joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of his 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 Doug as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “He came to us highly recommended and I look forward to our coordinated efforts for years to come.”
