The conference and fair, called Women in Business: Launching a New Decade, was held this year in Los Angeles, California from June 25-28.

“For seven years, the GWBC has been the premier third-party certification agency for women-owned business enterprises (WBEs) in the state of Georgia—and a model for the nation,” said Linda Denny, President of WBENC. “It has done an outstanding job of engaging its 475 WBEs and over 20 major corporate and non-profit members.”

WBENC's Partner Organization of the Year is recognized for exceptional accomplishments that expand opportunities for women's business enterprises on a national level while furthering WBENC's work in expanding opportunities and eliminating barriers in the marketplace for women business owners. The Partner Organization of the Year must meet numerous criteria, and are evaluated on their commitment to the WBENC network (WBENC National, corporate members, WBEs and other Women Business Operating Partners). This commitment included activities of the staff, corporate members and WBE volunteers.

“The GWBC continues to support our corporate members by helping them communicate the importance of doing business with WBENC-certified WBEs,” said Roz Lewis, Executive Director of the GWBC. “GWBC participated in the Georgia Power, A Southern Company, Power Plant Tradeshow. The GWBC has also partnered with the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GHCC) and its business development incubator, Hispanic American Center for Economic Development (HACED) to be the certifying organization for all its women-owned businesses.”

“We are working with HACED to have informational materials concerning certification and the certification process translated into Spanish and developing seminars which will become a regular part of the curriculum that is offered by HACED,” said Parri Womack, Certification Manager of the GWBC. “Additional key partners are the United Way of Greater Atlanta and The Resource Institute. During the United Way’s Women’s Legacy Shoe drive, our WBE’s provided an exemplary level of support to help women and children who are residents of the city’s homeless and women’s shelters.”

"To receive the recognition of Partner Organization of the Year is truly an honor and, more importantly, a "thanks" to the hardworking leaders of our organization,” stated Eyvon Austin, GWBC Board Chair and Supplier Diversity Manager for The Coca-Cola Company. “The office staff and board of directors operate in one accord to fulfill the mission and purpose of our organization. The GWBC is committed to the growth and development of women business enterprises. Our educational programs and networking opportunities provide our WBEs with the skills needed and foundations required to compete for procurement opportunities. As we begin to prepare for WBENC Women In Business Conference 2008 in Atlanta, this honor will more than ever continue the GWBC W.A.V.E … Women Adding Value Everyday!”

For the past two years, the Co-Chairs of WBENC’s Women In Business Conference and/or the Salute Awards have been certified WBEs from Georgia. This underlines an exceptional commitment to GWBC’s mission and the partnership with WBENC. In 2008 this commitment will continue with Georgia-based, women-owned business enterprise ASAP Staffing, as one of the Co-Chairs of the Women In Business Conference, which will be held in Atlanta with fellow Atlanta-based sponsors The Home Depot and UPS.

WBENC is dedicated to bringing America's corporate and federal government buyers face-to-face with America's women-owned business suppliers and its annual business fair and conference is the largest event of its kind. This year, the conference attracted over 2,500 attendees and more than 400 exhibitors. During the four-day event, women-owned businesses, senior corporate executives, supplier diversity and procurement professionals and government representatives came together to participate in an ambitious agenda including networking activities, workshops, general sessions and special events.
