The National Association of Women Business Owners hosted its annual National Advocacy day June 14 in Washington, D.C

More than 70 business women attended the event to connect with peers, elected officials and public policy experts, according to a release. NAWBO, which now has more than 9 million members, was founded 42 years ago as the first advocacy organization for women business owners.

“We are proud to carry on that legacy by bringing NAWBO members from across the country, representing all sizes, sectors and segments of the women business community to Washington, D.C. to connect directly with their elected officials on the issues that impact them like taxes, access to capital and the development of a more qualified workforce to meet the economy we have now and the economy we are moving into,” NAWBO National Board Chair Teresa Meares said, per a release.

Linda McMahon, head of the Small Business Administration, gave remarks at the event, as did multiple members of Congress including Debbie DingellDoris MatsuiStephanie Murphy, Krysten Sinema and Jackie Walorski.

NAWBO also hosted its first Academy for Public Service following the event, which allowed NAWBO members to access information about pursuing a path in public service.
