Serving as the president and the chief cheerleader of NAWBO Phoenix for the 2017/18 year is a privilege of a lifetime. I’m meeting and connecting with so many amazing women who have had and are making a huge influence in my life.
Because of how my life has been affected in such a positive way, I encourage businesswomen — and men, of course — to come and see what NAWBO is doing for its members and for the community at large.
NAWBO Phoenix is an organization of women business owners who are serious about running their businesses and these same business owners have found in this organization support for that philosophy.
NAWBO Phoenix is built on the pillars of Education with Advocacy, Connections, and Collaboration and Inclusion.
NAWBO is an organization that works to: STRENGTHEN the wealth-creating capacity of our members and promote economic development; CREATE innovative and effective changes in the business culture; BUILD strategic alliances, coalitions and affiliations; and TRANSFORM public policy and influence opinion makers.
I joined NAWBO Phoenix about four years ago and spent the first year or so observing the organization and feeling somewhat like an outsider. This situation was of my own making, and when the day came that I finally said, “I need to get involved by joining a team,” my membership shifted, and the rest is history.
The NAWBO 2017/2018 board year is being guided by and for women who are passionate about the good of the organization and bringing value to the membership.
Come and see what we have to offer you! You’ll be happy you did.
Looking forward to your success,
Julie S. Cook
NAWBO Phoenix President, 2017 – 2018
Owner, Idea Three Creative
