President's Message - August 2020

August 10, 2020


I hope this message finds you and those close to you safe and healthy.  We know that all of you have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, both personally and professionally.  Now more than ever, continued connection and support with other women business owners are so important.

The NAWBO Board of Directors met last month to look at how best we can serve our members so that they can retool, rebuild, and revive.  Staying connected to you, our members, is paramount. This month, board members will be reaching out to you to find out how you are doing and see what additional ways we can help.

We are also working on retooling the Top 10 Michigan Business Women Awards  to go virtual so we can still celebrate the 2020 honorees. Our annual PARtners Golf Outing will also still be taking place. We are finalizing dates for both of these events to take place this fall.  Please watch for emails soon.
