At the end of June, several ESS employees will travel to Orlando, Fla. for the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) 2016 National Conference and Business Fair. It’s an important conference for us since we are a woman-owned business and our very own CEO, Sheila Benson is a part of the Host Committee. Sheila and the rest of the Host Committee represent WBENC as the official ambassadors, providing information about the conference, its goal, mission, and content. In addition, they serve as spokespeople on behalf of the 2016 WBENC National Conference.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Creating Magic Together.” The conference will begin with a kickoff luncheon and keynote speaker. The business fair will take place on day two; be sure to stop by and see us at Booth# 824.
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States. WBENC, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit, partners with 14 Regional Partner Organizations to provide its world-class standard of certification to women-owned businesses throughout the country. Outside of the United States, certification is provided by an alliance partner, WEConnect International.
WBENC is thriving because of the strong commitment of Corporate and Government Members, Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs), Regional Partner Organizations (RPOs), Alliance relationships, and the leadership provided by the WBENC staff.
Stay tuned for more updates on the conference, as we are very proud to be a part of this great organization!
