President’s Message

Wow! More than 40 members and guests shared food, drinks and laughter at our August social event last week at The Architect in downtown Raleigh. What a wonderful start to a new year full of inspirational and informative events!

Join us on Wednesday, Sept 30, when Stephanie McDilda shares her inspiring story at our first luncheon of the year. October features another social event for more casual networking, followed by our public policy luncheon in November.

In addition to our great luncheons and informal social events, NAWBO also offers monthly workshops on a variety of topics. NAWBO members have the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise as a featured workshop presenter. If you would like to be considered for a workshop, send your idea to Karen Johnson, Mentoring Chair, at

We are also hosting two informational sessions about our NAWBO Roundtables.
Roundtables serve as a quasi-advisory board for your business and are one of the best benefits of your NAWBO membership!

Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and the cool breezes. I look forward to connecting with you and I hope to see you soon!
