The State of NAWBO-Columbus, featuring special guest U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty

Please join us as we celebrate 20 years of NAWBO Columbus. Hear about the exciting accomplishments of our Chapter in the past year, learn how you can maximize your involvement in NAWBO and get a sneak peek into upcoming programming and chapter developments.

Highlights for this celebratory meeting will include: 

• An opportunity to hear from honored guest, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, representative to the 3rd District of Ohio, as she speaks to our chapter about issues facing women-owned businesses.

• A special appearance by 2014 Visionary Honoree, Sally Hughes, President and CEO of Caster Connection, a multi-million dollar company serving thousands of other companies throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe.  Ms. Hughes will speak about what NAWBO means to her.

• One-on-one networking with our corporate partners to learn how they can help you grow your business

• A discussion by Randy Gerber, CEO and founder of Gerber, LLC, as he highlights what makes his company an integral part of NAWBO and ways other Corporate Partners can use their partnership to help spotlight their businesses. Mr. Gerber will also introduce a very exciting opportunity available only to NAWBO members: The Emerging Entrepreneur Program.  

• State of Chapter messages from our President and Committee Heads

• A deep dive into benefits available to you as members that you may not even know about, and how those benefits can help you in your business.

Please note that this meeting will be held on the second Tuesday of the month instead of the usual Thursday meeting.
