For the New York City Chapter's 25th anniversary, we are focusing this celebration on women entrepreneurs with business longevity by presenting three Signature Lifetime Achievement Awards instead of one.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 21, 2010
The National Association of Women Business Owners – New York City Chapter will honor seven outstanding women entrepreneurs at the 2010 Signature Awards Reception on Tuesday, June 8th at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery, 141 Prince Street, New York City. The Signature Awards, established in 1992, is a premiere event to honor remarkable women business pioneers who have left their unique mark – their “signature” - on the business community.
According to Pat Ahaesy, NAWBO-NYC President and Signature Awards Committee Chair, “For the New York City Chapter's 25th anniversary, we are focusing this celebration on women entrepreneurs with business longevity by presenting three Signature Lifetime Achievement Awards instead of one. We also continue to honor our traditional Master, Promise and Social Entrepreneur Awards, while adding the Social Media category in recognition of our changing times.”
The Signature Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes women who best exemplify the commitment, determination and endurance it take to create a successful, long-term business and who have succeeded in making their organizations a household name. This year’s recipients are Susan P. Meisel, President, Meisel Real Estate; Jocelyn Nager, President, Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager, PC; and Orit, President and CEO, The O Group.
This year’s Signature Master Award recipient is Sarah E. Endline, Founder and CEO of sweetriot. The Master Award honors the achievement of a woman who owns and operates a mature company and continues to succeed by being constantly innovative—shifting her strategic focus, incorporating new technology, expanding her market or increasing her staff.
We continue to encourage up-and-coming businesses with the Promise Award that individually recognizes the woman whose business has the promise of breakthrough success based on innovation and progressive product and/or service plans. For 2010, Deborah Brenner, Founder of Women of the Vine shows that promise. Other outstanding honorees are Jennifer Brown, CEO of Jennifer Brown Consulting (Signature Social Entrepreneur Award) who focuses on creating social capital and Mardy Sitzer, President, Bumblebee Design & Marketing (Signature Social Media Award) who helps women communicate with today’s technology.
