Monthly Article


For NAWBO, every June is special.  It marks the end of one Board's term and the installation of new leadership.  This traditional ceremony is important because it reminds us all that this, and any organization, can only survive if volunteers are willing to step up to the plate and lead. 

NAWBO leadership consists of an Executive Board and several Committee Chairs.  All of them serve a very important function and ensure that the mission of NAWBO is properly executed and disseminated throughout the community.  Our leadership represents our organization, and we want to make sure that the spirit of NAWBO lives in the hearts of all of our leaders. 

No one can do it alone and we're all in this together.  For members who decide to take on a Board position or be part of a leadership committee, past Chapter leaders invariably offer meaningful and invaluable support.  Not only do they have historic knowledge of what worked or didn't work in the past, they know what it's like to be in a leadership position, and they don't want anyone to feel as though they are an island.

So if you are a member of NAWBO and are interested in a leadership position, attend our Installation Dinner this Thursday, June 14, at 6:00 p.m. and see what it's all about.  You can also ask any seasoned NAWBO sister in attendance and they will gladly share their experience.  We need strong leadership to continue making a positive impact in our community, and especially in the lives of women business owners.

When she first started her business, she was advised not to be afraid to ask for help or share her story with others. There would be many fellow businesswomen eager to see her succeed. This proved to be 100% true and she cherishes that advice and encouragement.

Inez continues to be grateful for the sisterhood that is NAWBO. Some of her best friends have come from NAWBO and those relationships continue to grow and strengthen as her business grows. She knows that her NAWBO sisters will always have her back. They understand first hand the daily challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship.
