NAWBO’s Advocacy for You – Raise Your Voice on NAWBO Issue Councils

NAWBO National Issue Councils Accepting New Members

We use the NAWBO National Issue Councils to highlight the depth and diversity of our members, like you. When we are able to couple your business expertise with NAWBO National’s long-standing reputation as a bipartisan organization of policy experts representing all women business owners, we are able to make positive and significant contributions to the advocacy arena and debate on issues.

“The Issues Councils are GREAT! They only take up time if you volunteer to speak to someone regarding what is already your specialty, and about which you are passionate. I’m on the Technology Council, and basically, it gives Joy and Elle (from the NAWBO Advocacy area) specialists to call upon when they get a request from the press or DC. At that point, they put out an email and say, ‘if you can speak to this issue (X, Y or Z), please reach back to us, and we’ll share your information with person A’.”—Personal Testimonial from Sandra Clitter, NAWBO Philadelphia

The Five NAWBO National Issue Councils are:

  • Government contracting and disparity studies
  • International trade and issues
  • Taxes and regulations
  • Technology
  • Workforce issues, including education, healthcare, and pensions

If you or any NAWBO member you know possess expertise from your business in any of the five areas, please reach out to Joy at jlutes@nawbo.org to discuss joining.
