I have been a member of AWOB for many years now and can attest to the quality of business professionals in this group. Don’t let the “Women” part of AWOB hold you back men- you are both welcome to come and to join AWOB. As a member you will be constantly be making valuable connections, learning how to improve yourself and your business and there is always lot’s of social fun.

I personally have had the opportunity to hear a presentation by Amanda Beard. If you recall she is a seven-time swimming Olympic medalist. After reading her book “In the water they can’t see you cry” I know she will touch your heart and inspire you as she speaks about maintaining fierce focus and “Swimming Against the Current”.

My dear friends from Olalla Winery will also be serving up tastes of their wonderful wines and giving you the opportunity to pick up a bottle to take home. If you have not visited Olalla Vineyard & Winery you still have an opportunity to join in an amazing gourmet dinner on Sept.22, where our local international culinary master Chef Sunshine Catering will be providing a dinner that brings all the flavors of summer to your palate. Here is the calendar link to the dinner.


Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with local business professionals from this area as you learn about the benefits and affordability of AWOB membership. Come on by the AWOB informational table and learn about possible sponsorship opportunities as well as membership benefits. You might even win a 1 year AWOB membership if you are a non-member guest.
