The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is celebrating the organization’s 40th anniversary in 2015. The organization was founded in 1975 by a group of women entrepreneurs who joined together to remove obstacles and create opportunities for other women entrepreneurs across the country. Today, NAWBO boasts 5,000 members and 60 chapters nationwide and is the only member organization representing women entrepreneurs in all sectors, sizes and stages of their business development.
Darla Beggs, NAWBO National Board chair, said, “At NAWBO, our mission is to provide women entrepreneurs with greater access to the tools they need to grow their businesses. This year, in conjunction with our 40th anniversary, we will roll out a series of programs and events designed to empower women entrepreneurs and showcase the expertise and experiences that our members bring to the table.”
NAWBO will host a series of events across the country in conjunction with its 40th anniversary. The celebration will culminate at their annual Women’s Business Conference, which will be held September 27-29, in San Antonio, Texas.
