Scottsdale, AZ, March 21, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Did you know that up until 1988, women business owners weren’t able to secure their own financing? Plan to join members of the Phoenix Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and their guests to celebrate the passage of the Women’s Business Ownership Act (H.R. 5050) at the organization’s monthly meeting.
H.R. 5050 was passed with the help of the National Association Women Business Owners (NAWBO). The legislation addressed the needs of women in business by giving women entrepreneurs recognition and resources, and by eliminating discriminatory lending practices by banks that favored male business owners.
The April 11 event will be a breakfast with speaker Penny Allee Taylor, chief of public policy for Valley of the Sun United Way, regarding the impact of H.R. 5050, and tips for advocating for what women care about.
“Thirty years ago, NAWBO members were instrumental in getting this legislation passed to help women business owners,” says Julie S. Cook, NAWBO Phoenix president and owner of Idea Three Creative. “After breakfast and Penny’s presentation, attendees are invited to join us in visiting our legislators at the State Capitol.”
The April 11 NAWBO breakfast meeting begins at 7:30 a.m. and will be held at the Gainey Ranch Golf Club (7600 E Gainey Club Dr., Scottsdale, 85258). Tickets are $43 for members and $53 for guests, and reservations can be made online at www.nawbo.org/Phoenix.
NAWBO is an organization that works to: strengthen the wealth-creating capacity of its 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.
