I am thrilled that NEWBO is launching this exciting awards program to recognize the kinds of talent and dedication we see every day among NEWBO members," said NEWBO President Celia Couture.
When NEWBO launched in 1978 the per capita income was $8,638, a postage stamp cost $0.
I'm looking forward to working with all the talented and dedicated members of the NEWBO board, as well as other members who volunteer their time, to carry out the great work of NEWBO, which is to encourage and support women business owners in New England," said LaPlante-Dube upon assuming the role of President.
Founded in 1978, NEWBO provides outstanding professional resources, educational programs, peer support, and networking opportunities for women business owners in a range of industries, from startups to large corporations.
I'm proud to be assuming the role of NEWBO President and look forward to helping the organization continue to realize its important mission - providing support, education, and resources that women need as they start and grow their own businesses," said LaPlante-Dube.
I am especially pleased that I can give back to NEWBO some of what it has given to me over the years.
