Power Your Voice

Since 1975, NAWBO has been the voice of women business owners—making sure we are at the table with key decision makers on Capitol Hill and speaking out on the issues that are most important, plus empowering our chapter leaders and members to do the same in their states and communities across the U.S. To best represent the diversity within our membership, all the business advocacy issues we engage in are bipartisan in nature.


To support our chapters and members in their efforts to power their NAWBO voice and impact positive changes in their states and communities, we are pleased to provide a variety of resources. Click on the links below to get started.
