Dear NAWBO-SV Community,

They’re back!  The brown bag lunches are back! NAWBO-SV is joining with Bridge Bank to bring back our brown bag lunch series.  The first one is scheduled for Thursday, March 6 featuring experts from Bozzuto Insurance Company discussing the health care changes.  Watch our website for updates and further announcements.

The NAWBO-SV Board of Directors will be having a mid-year strategic session later this month focusing on membership.  Topics will include continued value for your membership and new membership drive.  Stay tuned.

Along the topic of membership, many have asked – what is the value we receive from being a member of the national NAWBO organization?  We are excited to share below a communication from National on this very topic.

In March, several NAWBO-SV members will be attending NAWBO California’s Propel Your Business Conference in Sacramento.  This conference is two days packed with panelists and keynote speakers on issues impacting small to medium sized businesses doing business in California, and the legislators that influence our business environment.  Not to mention the high energy networking among women business leaders across the State!  We hope to see you there.

We trust 2014 has started out well for your business.  Even if you have broken your New Year’s resolutions, it is not too late to set goals for 2014.  As always, we welcome your feedback on how to make this a better chapter, encourage you to invite your friends and colleagues to future meetings, and become a member.

Very truly yours,
Jennifer Dizon
NAWBO-SV President
