WBEC-West is proud of the partnerships we have created with community and government entities over the past few years. Each organization offers unique opportunities for your business, and we encourage you to get involved with the organizations that best fit your needs.




The National Association for Women Business Owners (NAWBO) has a chapter in each large metropolitan area. Many NAWBO chapters that WBEC-West has partnered with offer discounted membership dues – check with your local chapter for exact costs.  If you would like to find the chapter nearest to you, visit their national website, www.nawbo.org.
