NAWBO National and 50+ Chapters Urge Congress to Include Organizational Non-Profits

PR Newswire

WASHINGTON, March 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and all its chapters across the country continue to urge Congress to include organizational non-profits in the next stimulus package. Non-profit member organizations, 501(c)(6) organizations, are left out of the most recent legislation, meaning numerous organizations like NAWBO will not receive any relief during this time of crisis.

"If the lawmakers don't include organizations like ours in the stimulus, it will set back women business owners decades," said Chair of the NAWBO National Board Jeanette Armbrust. "Women business owners rely on resources provided by groups like NAWBO to receive continuing education, tools to scale their businesses, and networking opportunities. Without any relief, these organizations will close, and our economy will suffer."

NAWBO started back in 1975 as a women's advocacy organization because women could not join chambers of commerce. Today, we represent the fastest growing economic sector in the country, employing 9.4 million and generating $1.6 trillion in revenue. We want to continue to be a resource to our communities," expressed the 50-plus Chapter presidents from:

During this pandemic, even while we face our own challenges, NAWBO National and our chapters have stepped up our efforts to connect and support women businesses owners around the nation through:

We have also opened up these normally member exclusive opportunities to the public at no cost to ensure the fastest growing economic sector we represent continues to thrive.
