A National Platform
NAWBO was founded in 1975 to open doors for women entrepreneurs by transforming public policy and influencing opinion makers. NAWBO has continued to represent the issues and concerns of small and women-owned businesses at the national and state levels. Through Congressional testimony, public policy conferences, scheduled meetings with Congressional Representatives, and member education, NAWBO has been and will continue to be at the forefront of advocacy on behalf of women business owners and the issues that impact their companies.
Our State Presence
If you were given a platform with the right person to put your business or industry in a better position to succeed, would you take it? Being disengaged about legislation changes can result in unintended consequences for not only your business, but also others in your industry.
In addition to having presence at Small Business Day at the Capitol every legislative year, our NAWBO-SA members actively advocate about the UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES of legislation by providing testimony on proposed legislation and the impact to our businesses.
