Nominations NOW OPEN: 2019 Achieve Awards! | NAWBO
NAWBO Vertical 
Time to recognize and 'Lift Up' our amazing Members!
Hello NAWBO-MN members, supporters and friends! 
It is time to nominate women business owners and partners for our annual Achieve! Awards Gala. This event allows us to celebrate NAWBO women business owners whom have achieved amazing accomplishments with their businesses not only within our organization but within our communities and the state of Minnesota! We also celebrate one NAWBO partner whom has gone above and beyond with their dedication and support of our membership. 
As most of you know, we have historically held our annual Achieve! Awards Gala in the Fall. New this year, we have decided to move this super-inspirational event up to this coming June and combine it with our annual meeting. One reason for this is that June closes our NAWBO MN fiscal year so it is the PERFECT time to recognize our members and partners for their success and contributions! 
Achieve! Awards Gala Save the Date

When we hear the stories of other women business owners succeeding through grit, determination and perseverance, we are encouraged to do the same. What could be more inspirational than that? 
Please take the time to nominate a woman business owner and partner you want recognized during this once a year incredible event!
Very truly yours,
Mary Nutting
President, NAWBO Minnesota
