After a successful Speak Out event in 2018, we are announcing the
Second Annual Speak Out powered by Santana Wealth Management!
Our goal is simple at this event: to provide a forum for YOU, as a business owner, to Speak Out about what you need from local government officials to support the success of your business.
Men and Women Business Owners will speak, and our local government officials will… watch and listen.
During this non-partisan event, businesses will be given the opportunity to SPEAK OUT on topics impacting small business, like:
- Long Term Energy Reliance
- Access to Capital
- Water Ressources
We will be LIVE polling our business owners on specific questions regarding these key areas.
This is a POWERFUL process that has been used to successfully influence change in other areas, and NAWBO Central Coast California is proud to bring this successful format back to San Luis Obispo County business owners.
Our elected officials will watch and experience firsthand what YOU as a business owner are feeling. This is YOUR opportunity to SPEAK OUT, and for them to listen. This isn't a typical town hall forum where you express your feelings and are given canned answers, instead, we will take your responses and our representatives will be watching from the stands to see how you're truly feeling in today's economy!
After our live polling, we will be moving our crowd to a hosted Cocktail Hour and Networking. During this time, you will have a chance to mix and mingle with your elected officials and ask them any specific questions you may have!
Tickets are $15.
Cocktail Hour included in the ticket price.
