Upcoming NAWBO Events | NAWBO

At NAWBO, we are thankful for so many reasons.

By Rosaria Cain

NAWBO President

 

I am thankful and grateful that I get to serve this great organization as President this year. It hasn’t been easy. It’s been rewarding and I am so excited to see younger, more diverse members at our Happy Hours and our business programs. We have worked hard to bring relevant content like Kari Lake, gubernatorial hopeful (the current Republican front runner) and Lilach Mazor Power who is the only majority owned Cannabis dispensary owner.

 

Meet our new NAWBO Board Member, Chanese Smith.

 

I’m also thankful for our new board member Chanese Smith, currently in school and planning an ivy league education and heavily involved with her studies, technology and fellow students. She will be overseeing the NextGen strategy and how we will be an organization for all ages.

Our speakers, so far…

 

Future speakers include business woman, motivational speaker and former broadcast journalist Danielle Williams January 12th. Her mission is to use her journalism background to fuel her passion as a motivational speaker. On March 9th, we will feature Amanda Rumore, who owns her own PR firm and has come back strong from a brain injury in her story of hope and inspiration. I couldn’t be more thankful that we are back to in-person events and social gatherings.

 

Treat yourself to the Red Carpet treatment.

 

The Red Affair, sponsored by Merrill/Bank of America, on Wednesday, Dec. 9th, will be our first big party in eighteen months. It is held at the glittery Chateau Luxe will feature a live DJ, dancing and the option to bring a “plus one”. This semi-formal event will be from 5pm to 8pm.

 

What’s coming up?

 

I am thankful that I get to meet the new members, many of which I have met over lunch. I get to hear their stories, why they joined and what they are looking for. I am proud that our Board of Directors has focused on the work of bringing NAWBO back to fun, vibrant gatherings that are relevant and never boring. Change takes courage and this group has taken charge.

 

What are the NAWBO Board members thankful for?

 

Karen Urman, Board Secretary and youngest member of the NAWBO Board:

“I am thankful that I get to work in a legacy business with my family. I have a newfound appreciation for what they do every day and I love what I do.”

 

Sandra Guadarrama Baumunk, Co-Chair of Programming:

“I am grateful to work with the NAWBO Board, this being my first Board assignment, it means a great deal to contribute to this great organization. I love the programs, the Happy Hours and all the interaction with members. It has changed my life.”

 

Christina Heide, Co-Chair of Corporate Partnerships:

“I keep a book of gratitude by my bed and write in it every day. At the moment, I am grateful for this day and all of God’s abundant blessings.”

 

Ginger Clayton, Chair of Neighborhood NAWBO:

“I am grateful for my health, time with my family truly connecting and for travel.”

 

Ronit Urman, Co-Chair of Mentoring:

“I am thankful for the amazing Arizona weather and for a prosperous marketplace.”
