NAWBO Southern Nevada
On February 26, 1990, the first meeting of the Southern Nevada Chapter of the National Asspciation of Women Business Owners was held at a standing-room only luncheon at the Olympic Gardens Restaurant and 52 charter members joined.
Two years later, the first NAWBO National Conference was held in Las Vegas. The national organization was stunned by a record attendance, which included almost 200 walk-ins. Three years later, three NAWBO Southern Nevada members were elected to the Nevada delegation to the White House Conferenceon Small Business.
In 1998 the Southern Nevada Chapter once again hosted the National Conference and the very next month launched the Women of Distinction Awards.
In February 2005 we celebrated our 15th anniversary and marked the milestone by signing up our 200th member, and in now in 2020 we are celebrating our 30th anniversary!
