The chapter provides outstanding opportunities to create valuable connections. You’ll network with dynamic women entrepreneurs and make important business contacts, gaining access to chapter partners offering a wide range of services. And you’ll benefit from chapter member support, energy and experience, while increasing business opportunities.

Our monthly programs offer inspiration, information, and insights that are absolutely essential for business owners. The chapter also provides workshops, procurement opportunities; member-only scholarship and leadership development programs; and business resources through our strategic alliances with other organizations, such as U.S. Small Business Administration and the Canisius College Women’s Business Center.

The chapter provides women with a voice on public policy issues. We build the power of women entrepreneurs through our lobbying efforts on the key issues that affect business.

The national membership directory and national conferences provide opportunities to link up with women entrepreneurs around the country. As well, there are numerous benefits and services available from national corporate partners.

Founded in 1974, the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO®) propels women entrepreneurs into economic, social, and political spheres of influence worldwide.
