Hello everyone,

Photo of Janet Harris-LangeSummer is well underway, and NWBOC is still as busy as ever. In fact, we are receiving twice as many new SBA applications (for WOSB and EDWOSB certifications) than this time last year. We are also re-certifying this group of companies at a record pace.

NWBOC is pleased to introduce three new members to its Board of Directors:
Erica Taylorof Arica Consulting in Wichita Kansas;
Willie Johnsonof CHEP located in Orlando, FL; and
Truth Garrettof Marathon Petroleum in Ohio.

Their expertise and input will be a great asset to NWBOC. Both Willie and Truth head up supplier diversity departments for their prospective companies. Our new board members attended our board meeting and annual conference in Florida last month. Welcome to Erica, Willie and Truth!

We continue to receive wonderful and numerous success stories from you all which is not only heartwarming but rewarding to our staff and certification application teams who spend hours and hours reviewing each and every application. And, we congratulate and applaud the supplier diversity officers and purchasing officials who make a concerted effort to do business with certified woman owned and controlled companies.

More and more companies are asking for buyer access to our database of certified companies, calledThe Zone, so be sure your profiles are up to date. On theNWBOC homepage, click on the link "LOG-IN Certified Companies and Buyers." If your company is certified with NWBOC, you are already in there; all you need to do is log in and add your key words and company description. In this way, buyers can find you, as well as you can search for other women business owners.

We'll connect again next month. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Janet Harris-Lange, President
National Women Business Owners Corporation
