A MESSAGE FROM NAWBO BRC's PRESIDENT
- Kathleen Dorsey

Janine DiPaula StevensNo busy entrepreneur is willing to commit her precious time and financial resources to an undertaking unless she perceives that the value to her is at least as great as what she gives up.

Thousands of women business owners nationwide have seen the value in their NAWBO memberships. That value may be measured in terms of opportunities for business development, networking, leadership roles, or collaborating with other members.

Some find that the value likes in the timeliness and applicability of the monthly meetings allowing members to learn and reach beyond their potential. Others find enrichment from their involvement in our entrepreneurial scholarship program, public policy awareness, or outreach to build the diversity of the membership.

We look forward to sharing our organization with you and helping you...

BUILD. REACH. COLLABORATE.
