Your Voice Matters
As a member, making the most of your membership is important. Aside from regularly attending events, joining a committee is a great way to build relationships and make connections.
Maximize your NAWBO membership:
Participate in a committee.
By doing so, you can:
- Have more of a say in what our NAWBO chapter stands for and where we’re headed.
- Expand your network
- Cultivate deeper relationships, working alongside peer business owners who may become referral sources, collaborators or advisors.
- Enhance your skills as a business owner and leader, by trying your hand at project management, public speaking, social media, public speaking, writing, business development, etc.
Even better: You can scale your involvement as your needs, interests and workload permit. A few hours a week or month is all it takes to get in the game.
Feel free to ask a board member about their committee. You’re welcomed to attend a committee meeting before joining it.
