The event is packed with networking, ideas, timely breakout session topics and chapter success stories and is a must-attend for all NAWBO leaders and aspiring leaders. It takes place on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida. The deadline to register is noon on January 25th, but don’t delay as registration is already filling up fast!
