National Association of Women Business Owners-LA Launches New Website
The Los Angeles chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO-LA) announces that it has launched a completely revamped website in order to enhance the organization’s ability to communicate and collaborate with its membership and to attract new members.
NAWBO-LA represents the largest women-owned business community in the country, and is committed to the success and growth of the the Greater Los Angeles Business community – a region where over 509,000 women-owned businesses reside. The women-owned business community is the fastest growing segment in the economy, with such small businesses creating two out of three new jobs.
The new website was designed by Citrus Studios, which is owned and operated by Kalika Yap, a NAWBO-LA Board Member and V.P. of its Education Committee. Yap was also the recipient of the organization’s Rising Star Award in 2010.
The website is the first in several new initiatives that the organization will be rolling out this year, including a NAWBO-LA Blog that will be accessed through the website and its first entrepreneur’s conference, Innovate 2 Own – I2O, an all day conference which will take place on September 24, 2011 at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.
Here’s the Calendar of Events:
Representing more than 509,000 women-owned businesses in the Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana metropolitan area, employing more than 688,000 people, and generating more than $129 billion in annual revenues, women entrepreneurs have become an increasingly active and powerful force shaping the economic and political landscape of Southern California.
