Member Benefits

NAWBO Central & Northern New Jersey offers you many tangible benefits, but the most valuable one are difficult to quantify. What value do you put on always having someone to call for advice? How can you put a price tag on having colleagues who understand your joys and difficulties of business ownership? Why does it feel so wonderful when NAWBO, with all of our support, changes a government practice that makes it easier for small business to prosper? What is the worth of a media opportunity, a leadership role or a strong business lead?
 
Most importantly, you’ll connect to a most dynamic group of women entrepreneurs who get it—within New Jersey and across the country. Together, we can create positive change in the business climate and understand that in helping ALL businesses thrive, we generate opportunities for each of us.
