Everybody Welcomed Me with Open Arms and I Felt Right at Home

When I first joined the NAWBO Greater DC Board, everybody welcomed me with open arms, and I felt right at home. The Board gave me the opportunity to connect on a more personal level with some amazing women and learn skills that I use daily in my career. Without being involved, I would have never known as much as I know now about this great organization and all of the wonderful events it has to offer. Being a Board member made me realize the need NAWBO has for volunteers and membership. It is the hard work, dedication, passion, energy and experience of our members that enhances the programs NAWBO offers and keeps the organization going. If you would like to meet creative minds that fire you up, and care about making women voices heard in the business community, join us!
