NAWBO Advocacy & Legislative Update Luncheon | NAWBO

Thursday, October 14, 2021 -
11:30am to 1:00pm

La Cima Club 5215 N O'Connor Rd Suite 2600 Irving, TX 75039, US

October’s luncheon will be a legislative update and a discussion about what advocacy is and how NAWBO is involved.

Why it Matters - Advocacy is a key component of NAWBO. At the National Level, NAWBO identifies legislation to support or oppose based on its Litmus Test. The Legislation that NAWBO gets involved with directly impacts female business owners. This is a key differentiator between NAWBO and the other female business owner organizations that exist.

Kelsey Shofner, NAWBO DFW Public Policy Director, will discuss NAWBO’s Litmus Test and give an update on current Federal Legislation that NAWBO is advocating for/against and why. She also will give a quick update on the Infrastructure Bill/Budget Reconciliation Process/Debt Ceiling.

About the Speaker

Kelsey is an attorney who is passionate about helping start up and growing businesses set themselves up for success with proactive legal counsel. She works as “outside in-house counsel” to help her small business clients set up enforceable contracts, employee policies, and intellectual property rights.

As Director of Advocacy and Public Policy Kelsey connects NAWBO businesses with government programs that help women owned businesses succeed and uses the power of the DFW business community to influence federal, state, and local policy decisions.
