“Political Advocacy: What Business Owners Should Know and Why You Should Care”.

This engaging and informative panel discussion will cover the many ways in which public policy decisions impact the way businesses, both big and small, do business across North Carolina.

If you own a business and thought of politics as someone else’s concern, then this event is for you! 
The simple truth is this: Public policy directly impacts a woman’s ability to start, run and grow her business. You can’t afford to let critical policy discussions happen without your voice and your perspective being heard by those who enact such policies.

We are thrilled to have representatives and lobbyists from the local, state and national levels on this year's “What Business Owners Should Know and Why You Should Care” panel. These panelists will share their insights and experiences as professionals who are on the frontline of relevant public policy discussions. 

Panelists Include:

  • Chris Evans - Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina

  • Hayden Bauguess - ElectriCities of North Carolina

  • Gregg Thompson - National Federation of Independent Business – North Carolina Chapter

  • Joy Lutes - National Association of Women Business Owners

In order to build on the successes that we’ve achieved, women business owners must be informed, equipped and empowered. But, first, we must be aware !f the people, processes and policies that influence our ability to build and grow our businesses. Party affiliations and political rhetoric aside, this panel discussion is a crucial conversation that you are not going to want to miss out on so register today.

...And stay after lunch for our 1st 2018-2019  SUCCESS CIRCLE.  An excellent opportunity to further discuss in a group setting the issues, ideas and specific action steps you can take to encourage policy results needed for achieving your business’ desired results.
