Press Release – 7/2/18
Innovative Tub Solutions® President Joins Board of Directors of NAWBO-San Diego
Janis Stevens, President and CEO of Innovative Tub Solutions® was honored to be asked to join the board of NAWBO-San Diego next month. Janis has been an active member of NAWBO since 2016. During the
recent Propel Conference in Sacramento, Janis was inspired to get more involved with this powerful organization. The caliber of women in the organization, paired with their purpose and drive to empower
women, caused a shift in Janis from that of attendee to that of implementer. Specifically, the march to the Capital to promote SB826, also known as the Jackson bill, which will affect publicly held boards and requirements for seats for woman (see below for more information on this bill).
Being a part of that energy,
seeing change happen in front of your eyes,
surrounded by such committed women,
well, it was life changing.
