President's Report

Greater Kansas City Chapter

 

 

NAWBO understands that not all business owners are the same. As businesses grow, their needs and challenges change too.

 

Introducing, the NAWBO Circle - a specialized, premier members-only program exclusively for women who own businesses with more than $1 million in revenue each year - offering connections, access and learning opportunities designed for owners of larger businesses.

The Circle participants represent a critical and under-represented voice. Nationally, only 3 percent of women-owned businesses reach annual revenues over $1 million. NAWBO is ensuring that members who have reached this milestone in their business are well supported for accelerated business growth across all industries and benefit from peer-to-peer personal connections and support. 

In the inaugural year, the Circle is accepting only 50 participants. For more information or to apply contact Lynda Bishop, lynda@lyndabishop.com.

The annual fee to join the Circle is $2,500. This includes registration to the WBC and both retreats, and covers all Circle activities and benefits. Participants are responsible for their own transportation and lodging.
