SWAT Sister News!
Successful Women Aligning Together Newsletter 

   News From Our CEO, Dr. Robyn  

Summer is a time to re-group. There has been a lot of juggling of team members with everyone going on vacation but we have thrived! I am proud to guide this amazing organization. This month we made the finals for the Manatee Small Business of the Year award. We will know on August 11th if we are selected as a winner. We are also in our second year with the Anna Maria Island Chamber and the Greater Riverview Chamber. SWAT continues to grow and Deb and I are so happy to be able to provide 7 venues for you to sell your products or service or promote your business.

Keeping in touch with each of you is challenging, but we try to let you know how much we value you and your dedication to this unique group!
