Dear NAWBO Silicon Valley Members & Friends,

On Sept. 21 – 23 NAWBO National had their first Women’s Business Conference virtually. Due to COVID they went from an in-person event to totally online. The challenges of turning this event around were huge, but the determination and perseverance of NAWBO really came through. This feat was a perfect example of strong, determined, smart and organized women that can make things happen. This describes the caliber of women we have in this organization.

It was a fabulous event based on the theme Brave is… We celebrated NAWBO’s 45th Birthday, the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage, and paid tribute to some of our outstanding women of 2020-2021. There were wonderful speakers on topics from creating leaders for world change, leveraging technology for your business, to strategic planning.

One of the highlights was a Fireside Chat with Glennon Doyle, award-winning author and activist. If you did not get a chance to see her, you’ll want to read one or all of her books: #1 New York Times bestsellers Untamed and Love Warrior and bestseller Carry On, Warrior.

NAWBO awarded the “Woman Business Owner of the Year Award” to Rebecca Fyffe, CEO, Landmark Pest Management, presented by Bank of America.

NAWBO National also, wait for it, announced the 2020 Accomplishments and Initiatives Chapter Awards. We are proud to let you know NAWBO Silicon Valley was 3rd place among 50 chapters for Best Chapter 2020 and the 5-star Chapter Award.

Congratulations to the NAWBO Silicon Valley Chapter!

Stay safe and healthy. We are here for you!
