I'm getting tired of the gloom this week in Iowa, but thinking about all the energy and enthusiasm that will surround me on May 26 puts a smile on my face. A lot of my volunteer time lately has been focused on writing copy for print and electronic materials for the upcoming Women Mean Business® Summit in West Des Moines, IA. It's only the second year of this event by the National Association of Women Business Owners, Central Iowa Chapter (NAWBO-CI), and I am once again on the planning committee.
I've been a member of this organization since 1986, and the WMB Summit is the best, most-empowering program we've created. It builds business relationships, makes us look at ourselves and our businesses in new ways, and connects us to valuable business resources. Working with a team of WBOs to bring in a blend of national and local experts is exhilarating. After 31 years in business, the learning never stops. If you're a WBO (or want to be) and you need to recharge your batteries, shake up tired processes or systems, or take a new look at cash flow, networking and the questions you ask yourself, click through to the summit Web site for all the info you'll ever need to know. Discounted early bird registrations end Friday (May 14).
