NAWBO Chapter Leadership Development Training
Creating Leaders for a World of Change
Come ready to connect with some of the most influential women in the country who are working towards the same goals as you. The action-packed day's program is designed and focused on specific feedback from current Chapter Leaders: sharing best practices, learning the resources available from National, and training to make you a stronger leader in your local chapter and in your business.
All NAWBO Leaders and future leaders are invited and encouraged to attend.
Leadership Development Day happens three times a year - on the West Coast, East Coast and prior to the Women’s Business Conference. We hope this enables all leadership from chapters across the country to attend.
Join us for a day that will help you leverage the powerful legacy of NAWBO to create a bigger impact in your community.
