Sandy Bartow has been named the new leader of The National Women’s Business Council.Â In her new role, Sandy will act as advisor and counsel to the President of the United States, Congress and the U.S. Small Business Administration.Â The 15-member board of The National Women’s Business Council that Sandy will lead consists of female business owners and their representatives and works to promote women-owned businesses in both the public and private sectors.
Before her appointment to The National Business Women’s Council, Sandy already held important positions as executive director of the Jacksonville Women’s Business Center and Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce Small Business Center in Florida.Â Prior to those roles, sheÂ was the executive director of the Kansas Women’s Business Center, where she won the SBA’s National Women in Business Advocate Award.
Sandy will hold her role for aÂ three-year term duringÂ whichÂ she plans to let government leaders know about the importance of the 102 women’s business centersÂ across the country and the challenges they face. It sounds like Sandy Bartow is ready to take on the responsibilities of her new leadership role and will hopefully be successful in making strides for businesswomen and women business owners.
