    Welcome to the 2017/2018 year for NAWBO NYC! The new board and I are so excited to continue building upon the important work of NAWBO NYC! First – I encourage you to join us for the exciting journey ahead! We encourage anyone who hasn’t become a member yet to sign up now and enjoy our member benefits. One of our best and most impactful programs is our Mentoring Program. The deadline to register for this year is August 15th and as a former NAWBO NYC mentee for 3 years I highly recommend it! We also invite you to submit your interest in becoming a volunteer or Chair for a NAWBO NYC Committee. It’s a great decision to become more involved. We look forward to getting to know you better as a member of the NAWBO NYC community.

    Warmly, Maisha
