Here's to a Great 2019 and an Even Better 2020!

As women business owners, we’re habitually dreaming big, setting goals, working to power those goals, and regularly assessing wins and areas for adjustment. And there’s nothing like the end of a year to take stock in a big way—a way that not only makes us feel proud of how far we’ve come, but also reignites our excitement, creativity and drive for what lies ahead in the new year.

At NAWBO, there’s so much to be proud of as we wrap up 2019. We had another successful Achievement Luncheon and are planning for a bigger event in 2020. And we’ve welcomed additional women business owners and allies into our chapter that will make us all stronger by bringing fresh ideas and perspective, as well as support and encouragement and fresh opportunities to collaborate. Together, we’ve powered our voices locally and across the nation. We’ve welcomed new partners who embrace the NAWBO mission and are dedicated to providing the tools and resources we need to succeed and reach even higher. And that’s just the beginning, as part of a national organization that amplifies our reach and impact and provides us with access to incredible events, advocacy and educational opportunities all year long.

Looking ahead, 2020 is shaping up to be an incredible year. There’s so much to celebrate as NAWBO turns 45 and we honor this milestone and legacy. We are planning tremendous chapter events to connect, educate and inspire you, and we hope to see you at as many as you can attend to get the most benefit from your membership. Please save the date for our Achievement Luncheon on May 4, 2020 and be aware that NAWBO National is pulling out all the stops with events and the National Women’s Business Conference that heads to Austin, Texas, on September 21-23. It’s also a year of incredible opportunity to be heard leading up to the election as NAWBO identifies and endorses candidates based on their legislative track records of demonstrating support for small business.

We have so much to be grateful for and so much to get excited about in the year ahead.

Have a wonderful holiday season, and let’s make it a great year!
