About this Event

The 2018 AMEX State of Women-Owned Businesses Report estimates that there are now 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., and these firms generated $1.8 trillion in revenue that year. As advocates for the nation’s women-owned businesses, the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC), a non-partisan, independent federal advisory committee established to provide advice and policy recommendations to the President, Congress, and the Administrator of the Small Business Administration is committed to expanding opportunities for women’s business enterprise.

NWBC will host a public meeting on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM EST at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, Room SVC 203-202, in Washington, DC.

At this meeting, each of the Council’s three subcommittees: Rural Women’s Entrepreneurship, Women in S.T.E.M., and Access to Capital & Opportunity will present their current priorities and initiatives to the full body and the public. The Council will vote on these policy recommendations and present them to the President, Congress, and the Administrator of the Small Business Administration in its 2019 Annual Report.

The meeting is open to the public; however, advance notice of attendance is requested. To RSVP or submit a written comment, the general public should email Ashley Judah with the subject line – “Response for 9/24/19 Public Meeting.” The agenda will allow for 20 minutes of public statements. This time will be awarded in 4-minute increments to the first 5 people who confirm attendance and request to speak. All other submitted statements will be included in the meeting record.

A conference line will also be available for those unable to attend the meeting in person. Please call 1-208-391-5817 at the aforementioned event time. When prompted, enter conference ID number: 298732675.
