Women's Business Connection
A Monthly Conference Call for Women in Business

The National Women’s Business Council is hosting “Women’s Business Connection,” a monthly conference call for women business owners who want to become more involved in the policy debate on current economic and business issues.

Conference calls feature key members of the Federal government, public policy organizations, and business and industry leaders. They address a variety of topics including access to affordable health care, access to training and technical assistance, and access to capital. “Women’s Business Connection” also provides a forum for women business owners to voice their thoughts, concerns, and public policy priorities.

“Women’s Business Connection” is held on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 3:00 PM Eastern Time. Participants may join the call by dialing 1.877.326.2337 (toll-free) and entering code 3687613# (this number stays the same for each call).

The July 27 call was “The ABC’s of Certification for Women’s Business Enterprises.” Council Member Susan Bari and a panelist of speakers discussed the impact of certification with women entrepreneurs.

Previous “Women’s Business Connection” conference calls are available for those unable to join live. Each call lasts about one hour and may be accessed by dialing 1.866.803.1430 and entering the conference ID number 3687613# (scroll to the bottom of the list for playback control features).

Listeners will then be prompted to enter a code for the program. Please check their website for a list of recent program topics and take part if you’d like: http://www.nwbc.gov/wbconnection/wbconnection.htm
