NAWBO seeks nominees for Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards

NAWBO Sedona-Verde Valley Chapter is now accepting nominations for their Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards celebrating women in business in the Sedona-Verde Valley area. These awards will be presented at their annual benefit luncheon, "Shining Stars - A Celebration of Entrepreneurial Excellence", taking place at the Poco Diablo Resort and Conference Center in Sedona on Friday, May 8.

The organization is looking for nominations of excellent women business owners whose businesses are located in the Verde Valley and who exemplify leadership and success in the categories of Trailblazer, Customer Service, Non-Profit, Community Involvement, and Humanitarian. The Humanitarian award is open to a non-business owner.

"We want to celebrate with our community the successes of the women who are a driving force in it," Janice Dahl, Chapter President and Shining Stars Committee Chair. "This event gives us an opportunity to put the spotlight on those extraordinary business women."

Nominations forms are available on the chapter website, and only require the name of the nominee and a brief narrative denoting why the nominee should be awarded. All nominees will be honored at the event.

Tickets will go on sale soon for this benefit. Proceeds will be used to fund chapter charities including its scholarship fund and non-profit grant. Sponsorship opportunities are available and the community is invited to attend.
