We're happy to announce that Jody Johnson of Action Coach has joined the Board of Directors as Secretary. Her expertise in helping small business owners achieve success will benefit the Miami Chapter. She kindly donated a coaching session on Strategic Business Thinking to the raffle. 



Good news for the Miami Chapter. Immediate Past President Jennifer Ohl is returning to the Board of Directors. Her experience with NAWBO in Miami and at the national level will be useful. 




We're planning some interesting and unusual events for 2017. Stay tuned.


Our best wishes for a happy holiday season, and all the relaxation, family and friend time, and health that you need!
