Dear NAWBO Sisters, 

On behalf of the newly inducted board and myself, we thank you for the opportunity to serve you in the upcoming year!   Our focus this year will be the “Power of Innovation”!  Although there are many variations of the favorite is a quote from Steve Jobs: “Innovation is the difference between leaders and followers.” And that is precisely our goal...develop the leader in you!

Next month, our board will attend an all-day retreat to create our “plan” for the upcoming year. We have a fabulous foundation which was created by our predecessors. Our new board is anxious to listen to what you want and are committed to supporting and developing a strong initiative. I recently read, that if you wish people to listen to you...first listen to them! We are anxious to hear from you! Please take time to get to know our new board and contact any of us for additional support or information. (Click here to see new board)

And, to add to the excitement and energy for the 2017-2018 year, we have also installed our first Advisory Board, which consists of a representation of our sponsors and partners! We are so honored to have their mentorship and support in building our “Innovative Year.” Click here to view Advisory Board.

In the upcoming month, I will share the elements of our mission and vision and how we can inspire you to be Innovative! I also encourage you to join one of our event committees...very best way to utilize your leadership skills!
