NAWBO Committees

We need you!

The best way to get the biggest benefit from NAWBO is to get involved. Committees with volunteer members are responsible for the daily operations and the ongoing value of the organization. 

Joining a committee doesn't have to be a big commitment. We welcome all levels of participation and there are opportunities for every interest and skill set. The one thing they all have in common, is that it is the fastest and most effective way to get to know the other members of NAWBO.
