Members of the National Association of Women Business Owners® (NAWBO®) are a part of the largest dues paying organization for women entrepreneurs and the voice of the nation’s over 10 million women-owned businesses.  A NAWBO® membership offers women-owned businesses a national and local platform to tap into the power of an already established community of women entrepreneurs.

Membership Criteria:

  • NAWBO® Membership is open to individual women business owners who own an equity interest and actively participate as a sole proprietor; an active partner of a partnership or a corporation and who are involved in policy-making and day-to-day management of the corporation.


  • Members must join both the national organization and a local chapter.    NAWBO® has chapters in most metropolitan areas.  If there is a chapter within 45 miles of your home or business location, you must pay both chapter and national dues to be eligible for membership. If there is not a chapter in your area, you can join NAWBO® as an At-Large member.
