We’ve Come A Long Way Baby – A Celebration of HR 5050

October 9 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$40

30th Anniversary of HR 5050

It’s hard to believe, but as recently as the 1980s, women who dreamed of owning businesses faced myriad barriers, including the inability to get a business loan without a male co-signer, difficulty getting federal contracts, not having a seat at the policy table and lack of gender-sensitive entrepreneurial education and training.

Let’s welcome Past President Joyce S. DeLong and former Congressman John LaFalce. Joyce has three decades of business ownership experience and John was a very instrumental agent who worked hard to get HR 5050 passed, breaking down many barriers women entrepreneurs faced.

John LaFalce
Former New York Congressman, serving from 1975 to 2003

Joyce S. DeLong
Owner, Allegra Printing and Marketing, Past President, NAWBO Buffalo Niagara

Price: $35 for Members and $40 for Guests.
