LOCAL AND NATIONAL MEMBERSHIP
NAWBO membership offers women-owned businesses the best of all worlds – connections to a national organization and brand, as well as a local platform to promote and build your business.
“NAWBO is an amazing place to connect, learn, and grow as a female biz owner. Your heart, soul, and bottom line will be happy you joined.”
“My business is 25 years old and I have been a member of NAWBO for close to 20 years! Other organizations have been in and out of my professional business owning life but NAWBO has been a constant. NAWBO has helped me grow my business network!”
“Joining NAWBO has been one of the most valuable investments to guarantee the success of my business. There is no monetary value to be placed on the level of sisterly support, access to business resources, transparency in our peer-to-peer engagement and the lifetime relationships that have been established. The value of membership is BEYOND words!!!”
“NAWBO has been the support and catalyst for the growth of my business. I went from 0 to 100 (literally) the first year I joined NAWBO, then the support of the ‘sisterhood’ made sure I stayed there.”
“I was in business for 10 years before I found NAWBO… Joining is one of the BEST decisions I ever made. I have found the most incredible support network by the relationships that I have created through NAWBO. I no longer feel alone and isolated. I have met the most amazing women – in Greater Philadelphia and across the country through National. My business has grown. I have found my Advocacy voice. NAWBO women are amazing women.”
“I have met my greatest power partners through NAWBO – many of whom have become my dearest friends. The opportunities for both professional and personal growth are endless.”
“I joined NAWBO about 7 years ago and I have never looked back. It seems that the more involved I get with the organization the more I get back. NAWBO has been an invaluable source of information, knowledge, growth and development not only for my business but for me personally.”
"I thought to myself 'I can do this business because of the power of NAWBO!'"
“I have been a member of NAWBO for 15 years. As its Executive Director, I am proud of our members! I have gained valuable friends, clients and suppliers through that membership. NAWBO is my community!”
“When I think of NAWBO, I think of the over 5000 member businesses I have access to across the nation. That translates into a lot of opportunities for me to grow my business.”
