You can become a member of NAWBO today!

We offer three different types of NAWBO membership:


*Premier Member Category: The member owns a percentage of her business and receives all communications and publications, is eligible for all discounts and benefits, and is listed in the online member directory.

*Introductory Member Category: the member is eligible for limited discounts and benefits, receives all communications and publications, and is listed in the online member directory.

*Supporting Member Category: the member is an individual or nonprofit who subscribes to the objectives of NAWBO and wishes to lend support to NAWBO through membership.  The individual does not have to be a woman business owner and this category includes students and retired women business owners.  This category of membership includes limited discounts and benefits and is listed in the online member directory.  

Membership is open to sole proprietors, partners, and corporate owners with day-to-day management responsibility, along with those who support the mission and vision of NAWBO. Members automatically join both the Louisville chapter and the national organization, giving them access to a wide range of resources and support.

NAWBO’s strength comes from the diversity of its membership. We encompass all sizes of business, from those where the owner is the sole member to those with hundreds of employees. Many different industries are represented, from construction to importers, retailers to service providers. Women from every ethnicity and all over the country add to the mix. All appreciate the increased business opportunities and visibility that their membership affords, along with the supportive sharing of resources. NAWBO is a real force in the political arena, lobbying policymakers to address women’s concerns in the workplace.
