NAWBO Chapter Forming in Area

Under the sponsorship of US Bank, a steering committee is starting a local chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners.

NAWBO is an organization which works to: STRENGTHEN the wealth-creating capacity of our members and promote economic development; CREATE innovative and effective changes in the business culture; BUILD strategic alliances, coalitions, and affiliations; and TRANSFORM public policy and influence opinion.

They are planning on having meetings the 3rd Thursday of each month. The first meeting will be an Achievement Luncheon, which is a time to learn and socialize, on Thursday, June 17th from 12:00 - 1:00 pm. New members are asked to arrive at 11:30 for the Membership Welcome. The meeting will be at the Courtyard by Marriott in Moorhead. The cost is $15 for members and $30 for non-members. The speaker for the event is Missy Ohe of the Ohepen Mind.

They request guests to bring work appropriate clothing donations for Dress for Success and Clothing Connections. Clothing donations will be accepted on an ongoing basis at all local US Bank locations.
