More than a thousand guests will unite at the 10th annual Indianapolis chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO-Indy) awards ceremony.
The luncheon honors women business owners and their advocates. This year’s event is Dec. 17 at the JW Marriott and has a theme of “Now is Your Time to Dream Big.”
This year’s featured speaker, Sam Horn, is the CEO of The Intrigue Agency, a branding communications firm that helps clients and audiences create intriguing, one-of-a-kind positioning to separate them from the competition.
The luncheon will be highlighted by the presentation of the 2013 NAWBO-Indy Visionary Award recipients. Four individuals will be honored for their achievements as business owners and leaders in the community in the categories of Avatar of the Year, Indianapolis Choice, Member of the Year, and Woman Business Owner of the Year. The 2013 honorees will become part of a class of 32 past recipients.
In addition to presenting sponsor PNC Bank, event sponsors include Citizens Energy Group, Choreo/Business Furniture, Monarch, Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis, and Sensory Technologies.
A portion of the proceeds from the annual luncheon benefit the NAWBO-Indianapolis Entrepreneur Scholarship fund. Established in 2009, this member scholarship provides executive level education to enhance both personal and professional growth to one qualified member each year.
The celebration begins with exhibits and networking from 10 to 11:15 a.m., with lunch beginning at 11:30 a.m.
Individual tickets are $70 for members and $80 for non-members. Tables of 10 may be purchased for $900.
