NAWBO-OC Programs CommitteelThe Mission of NAWBO-OC Programs Committee is to present value-added networking dinners for our members and guests that coincide with our mission, “Building your Power, Passion and Profits for Success.” The networking dinners are an opportunity to connect with one another, to network with new members and guests, and to be engaged and informed by the meticulously selected keynote speakers. We strive to provide actionable and fresh ideas that our members can use in their business and/or personal life.  This often includes motivating stories that can inspire us to overcome adversity.

Meet our 2015/2016 Programs Committee members!
