The NAWBO Women’s Business Conference

nawbo kc

literally just got back to my office after three days in Minneapolis attending the 2017 National Women’s Business Conference hosted by NAWBO, or as we NAWBO’ers call it “the NAWBOWBC”.   Yep. I am tired from three days of conferencing and all the fun that goes with it but I am also energized and excited to be back at work. I’m super inspired and equipped with innovative ideas on how to build a better business for me and a better NAWBO chapter for us all.

With over 700 attendees representing 50-plus chapters, it was exciting to see our Kansas City Chapter recognized for building a better chapter (ask me about Star 3) and for adding 17 new members during our Spring membership drive (How did a little chapter like Kansas City add so many when BIG chapters added only 20 or 21?).

Our member and board member, Kelly Wilson of Weave Gotcha Covered!, was honored as runner up for the Dr. Tererai Trent Award and another member, Kelly Scanlon of Thinking Bigger Business Media, Inc., moderated a panel discussion on Growing through this organizaton.

It was a great conference; see for yourself on Facebook. The only disappointing part was that you weren’t there. Don’t let this happen again! Put next year’s conference on your calendar RIGHT NOW and join the fun in Spokane, Washington on September 23-25, 2018.
