    We offer five levels of NAWBO membership


    This membership is for the woman business owner looking to join the NAWBO community. With this membership, you will gain access to your local chapter or qualify for the online community if you live a 45-mile radius outside of your nearest chapter!


    This membership allows women business owners to dig deeper into their NAWBO membership and impact the future of the organization by attaining voting rights as well as the opportunity to serve on a local chapter or National NAWBO board.


    This option is for any business, individual, or non-profit organization who would like to support our cause and mission through partnerships and sponsoring.


    The next generation of women business owners will come from today’s undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recently graduated women entering the business field. This membership gives access to the community of experienced women within NAWBO, online and in person events, NAWBO publications, discounts and more!

    Online Community

    This membership is free of charge and gives women who choose to sign up access to our newsletter publications and limited virtual programming. This allows you to get your foot in the door until you are ready to take the next step to becoming a NAWBO member!

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.

    “Being a member of NAWBO Louisville has been one of the best things I have done for my business. The most important thing I found was that to get the most out of it you have to get involved. Being on the board of directors has given me great insight into the organization and the ability to meet and work with some great women. On the personal side, I have made some great friends who share being women entrepreneurs and that have been invaluable mentors in providing suggestions to grow my business. It is worth every minute!”
