Dear Members & Friends

As the new President of NLBWA San Diego, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve our members and partners at what I consider to be a very exciting moment in history!  According to recently published reports: 
- Latina women are one of the FASTEST GROWING entrepreneurial segments in the nation.
- 1 in 10 of all women-owned firms in the U.S. are owned by Latina women.
- We have a start-up rate of SIX TIMES the national average.
- California has the LARGEST NUMBER of Latina owned businesses.
This coincides with a pivotal movment for NLBWA San Diego as we move forward into our 7th year of life. As with any start up business, organization, these next few years tend to be an important growth and development phase. We will continue building upon the foundation set in place by our amazing predecessors, but it is also my vision to expand our reach, educational offerings, networking events, and peer to peer experiences that will allow us to collaborate, teach, and learn from EACHOTHER in new and fun ways....because when we do, the impact in our personal and professional lives, as well as in our community, is exponential! And let's face it, we are busier than ever so It's imperative we work smarter not harder and enjoy ourselves in our journey of life. 
It's not secret that all great leaders are simply a reflection of those they surround themselves with; therefore I feel extremley blessed to serve alongside a group of phenomenal women who show me me daily how to lean into the balancing act of giving, loving, and being at one with career, family, and community. These smart, talented women are business owners, corporate executives, and government leaders who volunteer 100% of their time to this organization, and they do it ALL with a smile on their face and incredible ease, and grace.  
NLBWA San Diego is considered a business advocacy leader in our community and a beacon for the dreams and aspirations of Latina and women entrepreneurs in the region and beyond across borders.

  I invite you to become a member today.  Our membership is made up of 300 entrepreneurs and professionals at all levels, women and men, who truly believe in our mission and help support NLBWA San Diego.
I look forward to seeing you at our events, in committees or perhaps considering board service. Please know that your feedback and suggestions are always welcomed. Feel free to email me at: remymimms1@gmail.com. 
We are the National Latina Business Women Association - San Diego because of YOU, our members, partners, sponsors, and volunteers. I look forward to seeing or speaking with you soon.  

Sincerely,
