Program Topic/Speaker:

HOLIDAY PARTY AND AN EVENING WITH
WOMEN BUSINESS OWNERS

 

The South Jersey NOW–Alice Paul Chapter is pleased to welcome speakers from the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), preceded by a discussion of chapter activities. The meeting will take place at the First Baptist Church, 19 West Street, Moorestown, NJ (enter via side door closest to municipal parking lot and Carl's Shoe Store).

We don’t often hear about women in business. In December, our speakers from NAWBO will be Fran Davis, President of South Jersey NAWBO, and owner of The Flavorful Fork Personal Chef Service. She’s been featured in the Courier Post and South Jersey Local News, and is a regular columnist for Virtua Woman.

We’ll also hear from Jo Colontonio, Director of Community Relations, who uses her degrees in business, economics and her MBA in marketing to build entrepreneurs and their companies. Jo is passionate about sharing her expertise with entrepreneurs and small businesses that struggle with growing their income…to develop their brand, attract more clients, create powerful marketing strategies, and increase their profits.

Founded in 1975, NAWBO is the voice of 10 million women-owned businesses, the fastest growing segment of the economy. It is the only dues-based organization representing women entrepreneurs across all industries, and boasts over 8000 members and 60 chapters. NAWBO is a one-stop resource, propelling women business owners into greater economic, social and political spheres of power worldwide.

NAWBO South Jersey was formed in 2003 and provides support, education, mentoring, and networking opportunities for women business owners and their associates in the region. Whether you’re a business owner, or just want to support women in business (if we don’t, who will?!?), please join us for an informative evening.


Meetings include speaker, refreshments, announcments and letter-writing activity.
Meetings open to members and nonmembers.


ENTER THE 23ND ANNUAL ESSAY CONTEST

please consider the following:

"You are running for the US Senate or House of Representatives.

have strong antioxidant levels as well as antibacterial attributes… just like cranberries! A jar of beach plum jam makes a

small gift. If you add one of our holiday bows, your gift will be complete...for only $12 for both! Jalma Farms is owned by

Each of us puts in one little stone,
