The New Conversation of NAWBO First
The Phoenix Chapter recently developed a new marketing initiative of #NAWBOFirst in hopes of creating an awareness of support among the chapter members, corporate partners and board of directors — to bring value and make NAWBOPHX the premier place for women business owners of Arizona to learn, share and support one another inside the chapter first, before looking elsewhere.
So please join us and share #NAWBOFirst!
