National Presidents’ Message
I am happy to report that NLBWAs’ 1st quarter is on target
to meet our goals to expand our partnerships, alliances, and
assets designed to strengthen the NLBWA membership benefits
value of our existing chapters’ business education programs.
This will give our members more options to customize a
sustainable plan for their continued professional growth and
NLBWAs’ mission to empower our Latina business
community and the programs remains at the forefront of all of
our initiatives. Our partnerships and alliances are designed to
meet the needs of the growing Latina community, our families
and that of corporate America. We plan on taking a holistic
approach as we serve our communities to embrace our
multidimensional facets of who we are as women.
We are living in a new era of responsibility and in a time
where we need to refocus on where our priorities lay as we
move into this new millennium. Challenging times are upon us
to keep our lives in balance in a time of economic uncertainty.
When we invest in ourselves by making a commitment to
become active participants of NLBWA chapter education
programs, training, networking or volunteering to give to others
is a gift and an investment in your future.
Trust, integrity and NLBWAs’ desire to serve others makes
me proud to be on this journey with all of you and for that, I
thank you for joining us.
NLBWA and its’ Foundation will create the infrastructure to
provide a technologically driven viral national branding
approach to deliver integrated and creative solutions to insure
member success of empowering our Latinas and their families.
Family, education, and brand relationships that empower and
build our communities will be at the core of all initiatives.
Learning to embrace and
identify the synchronicity that are
present in our everyday lives so that we
are in alignment is why forming alliances
with complimentary partnerships is key
to building hope, energy, optimism and
strength as we continue to deliver
valuable resources to the lives that
This year NLBWA expects to:
• Investment in a diverse education
knowledge base to enhance
opportunities to build future leaders.
• Social and economic empowerment through education,
and professional development.
• Alignments with key partnerships to maximize options.
• Engagement based on intrinsic and cultural values in line
with our philosophy and mission for our communities.
• Bridge the gap between fragmented information and
access to solutions to create a sustainable path for
improvements in all facets of our lives.
Take the time to think about what’s important to you and
let’s work together. When someone extends their hand in
support extend yours and bring someone else along with you.
It’s through this belief and our actions that we take on a daily
basis that will catapult NLBWAs’ ability to help and impact
more lives in the years to come. Life is not that complicated,
just “Do the Right Thing” a very simple philosophy.
NLBWA can make a difference and NLBWA can leave
things better than how we found them, this matters now more
