As I write this message, it is International Women’s Day. I hope we all step back, take a moment to reflect on how far women have come, especially as business owners, and how much more there is to achieve. Also, we are preparing for NAWBO California’s Propel Your Business Conference on March 10-11, 2014 at our State’s Capital in Sacramento. The agenda is filled with women (and men) accomplished in their field, and ready to lead us to the next level. I hope to see many of your there.

Here in Silicon Valley, NAWBO-SV sponsored the return of our brown bag lunch series at Bridge Bank, and heard from Betty Jo Waxman “Does Your Thinking Limit Your Success”. Upcoming events include Tracy Repchuk speaking on “Shine Online – How to Attract More Leads, Get More Clients and Make More Sales”. Who doesn’t want that for your business? Please visit our website for more information.

The NAWBO-SV Board of Directors held a strategic session focusing on membership. We looked at best practices from across our NAWBO sister chapters in California and nationally, as well as brainstormed a few of our own ideas. Be on the lookout for announcements from Monika Miles, Membership Director and other Board and Committee members.

Also, if you haven’t heard them yet, be on the listen for NAWBO-SV on KDOW 1220 AM on the radio. KDOW is one of NAWBO-SV’s newest corporate partners.

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
