Don't Miss NAWBO San Diego's Signature Event

We look forward every year to the evening when we honor San Diego women business owners who've established themselves as leaders and role models. This gala evening will begin with a no-host cocktail hour, followed by a gourmet meal and an exciting keynote speech from the "Queen of Sales Conversion",  Lisa Sasevich!
