March 2014 President's Message
A little recognition can go a long way.
Awards Season. It's that time of year again where we recognize the outstanding achievements of eighteen area women business owners. While there can be only six winners of our prestigious Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards, all are extraordinary. For 15 years NAWBO-SA has been dedicated to proudly shining the spotlight on hard working women entrepreneurs that would otherwise never have the opportunity to be recognized. As the only awards given by peers, it is truly meaningful to the recipients. We hope that you'll come out to cheer them on at our Gala on March 19th! But there is more to our mission...it's also about bringing up the next generation.
Teach a man to fish...
For the same 15 years, NAWBO-SA has been not just awarding area teen girls scholarships but more importantly, helping them to dream a little bigger and giving them the tools to start a business through our Fostering the Dream Foundation. This six month program concludes at our Entrepreneurial Spirit Awards night where we award 6 scholarships to our Business Plan Competition Winners totalling over $20,000. Just another reason to attend our Gala on March 19th. Between our winning women entrepreneurs and our future ones, you will leave truly inspired!
Mark your calendars!
Are you interested in seeking government contracts? You may know that gaining your certification(s) does not mean automatic business; you must first know how to WORK it. Whether or not you are yet certified, join us the first Tuesday of each month for our free Brown Bag Lunch Series: Working your Certification at Amegy Bank . Each month we will focus on a different certification. RSVP then bring your own lunch and come prepared to gain the competitive advantage!
You won't want to miss April's Cocktail Connections at the Brick House Tavern & Tap on April 1. We have fun and get to know each other in a relaxed environment.
We have a special Women Mean Business meeting in the month of April 24 th at our home base of the Petroleum Club. We will "Review the San Antonio Judicial Candidates." Come and enjoy the soup, salad and dessert buffet during lunch. This will be another outstanding program. Don't miss it!!
Together we will connect, empower, and propel each other to greatness. Won’t you join me?
