From the Desk of SA’s NAWBO PRESIDENT….

I am happy to report that we are hitting all of our goals for this year.

  1. Accelerating OUR Growth
    We are continuously growing our membership and their involvement in the Chapter. More than 80 members and guests attended our August Monthly Meeting with Congressman Will Hurd, and we are adding new programs and events.
  2. Recognizing OUR achievement 

Save the Date for the Women Business Owner Awards Celebration when we will be celebrating the accomplishments of some amazing women business owners.

Our award is the only award of its kind.  It is the only award given, exclusively, to women business owners by their peers.

We are inviting our community to join us in this celebration on Thursday, March 22, 2018.  There are many ways you can participate:

  • Nominate a deserving woman to be considered for the award.
  • Be part of the judging committee of the nominees. Contact Lynn Weirich if you would like to be involved.
  • Join us at the event by purchasing a ticket or table.
  • Be a celebration or category sponsor to publicly show your support of women business owners. Contact Susan Deitiker for more sponsorship information.
  1. Empowering US 
    We are constantly thinking of ways to develop partnerships to help you improve your business. Our Alliance Partner, theSmall Business Development Centerat UTSA, has invited us to participate in the American Business Women’s Day Conference and we would like you all to join us for this great opportunity. Downloadinformation packet.

We also want to invite you to go to the NAWBO National website to the NAWBO Institute where you will find great resources for your business.

  1. Making OUR voice heard 
    Congressman Will Hurd spoke very candidly to us at our August Monthly Meeting. He shared with us that the only way to make our voices HEARD is toengage your representativeswith your concerns on social media and by email before the issues hit Washington.
  2. Advocacy for OUR young women 
    Our Entrepreneurial Connections Program is off to a great start.

Our first event for the year will take place at the Rosenberg SkyRoom on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.Evening Connections is an event where students network with women business owners and begin exploring what it takes to start a business. Students learn about the importance of continuing their education, financial literacy, and business etiquette.

Help make these young girls’ dreams of entrepreneurship become a reality by joining as a Silent Partner.

Please feel free to reach out to me with anything you need to make your membership meaningful!

See you at the next event.
