Forum Partner Mary Pat Wesche has been named Treasurer of the Chicago Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). As a member of the Executive Committee and the Chicago Board of Directors, Mary Pat will help oversee the management of the Chicago Chapter while making sure the group retains a strong vision and strategy for advancing the goals of women business owners. Mary Pat was officially inducted in June along with several other chapter members at tech hub 1871, Chicago’s renowned Center for Technology and Entrepreneurship.
Mary Pat became involved with NAWBO several years ago as a way to connect with other women business owners. She has watched the organization grow and become a true force for women in the Chicago area. A member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Illinois CPA Society and the Financial Planning Association, Mary Pat took on the role not only to adeptly serve in the role of treasurer but to support women entrepreneurs through NAWBO’s mission to “strengthen the wealth-creating capacity of its members and promote economic development [and] to create innovative and effective change in the business culture.”
NAWBO Chicago was formed in 1978 to provide business women with leadership, education, procurement and networking opportunities. The organization recently partnered with 1871 to serve as a voice for its members on economic, social and public policy issues that affect the local communities throughout the city of Chicago.
