2015-2017 NAWBO Pittsburgh President
2016 is going to be an exciting time to be a women entrepreneur in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
Look around! The most outstanding asset that you have is at your disposal: The POWER of NAWBO, the National Association of Women Business Owners.
Being selected as a leader is always an honor…. but with this distinction comes great responsibility. As your President, I am truly excited about the changes and the opportunities this New Year brings. Someone once said: ‘To whom much is given, much is required’. WE as Women Business Owners have been given the opportunity to LEAD. Yes, I said WE. My plan for my Presidency is to engage YOU in running our historic NAWBO Greater Pittsburgh Chapter.
Your new board has many fresh, powerful ideas….. But we need to know what YOU NEED. We need your time and talents to help direct NAWBO as we go into our 40th year. There are no lack of ideas, just lack of time, something business owners and women are always short on. This is where NAWBO comes in. You can amplify your time, your talents and your connections simply by spending time with our members.
As an organization with a member first philosophy, our Pittsburgh Chapter strives 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 want to congratulate you for being a business owner in today’s turbulent economy and striving for continued success each day. It takes dedication, smart decision making, and hard work to keep our businesses moving forward. Women will change the economy with their ideas, their motivation, and the creation of employment opportunities.
We will soon be announcing a list of our monthly in-person networking events, along with webinars, classes and opportunities to help expand your business and your reach in our community. Stay tuned to our website, as we continually announce new events. In order to better service you, our membership, please do not hesitate to call, write, or email us with any of your questions, concerns, or suggestions. Your ideas enable us to provide you with the best possible organization to be associated with. Our general Email is firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, feel free to contact me anytime, 24/7, at my Contact One office at (412) 224-1330 and I will be happy to help you!
It is my sincere desire to not only meet you in person, but to connect you and your business with the incredible PEOPLE – and the best resources – to continue your journey as a Woman Business Owner.
Smart, Savvy and Successful!
With Great Admiration,
Kelli Morgavo Robbins
