ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 14, 2007 – A slate of successful Orange County
businesswomen, led by President Barri Carian, has been elected to new officer positions
in NAWBO-OC, the premier organization for women business owners in Orange County.

Carian, principal of Carian Consulting and chair of a CEO group in Vistage International,
has selected “Getting to the Heart Of It” as her 2007-08 theme for the chapter.

“The heart is the foundation of so many aspects of building a successful business. We
need to listen with our hearts,” explains Carian. “My goal for this year is to continue the
explosive growth of NAWBO as a resource where women of all levels of experience can
learn and grow and further their successful business lives.”

NAWBO-OC has grown to nearly 400 members, with particularly impressive growth
occurring during the past two years. During the coming year, Carian intends to lead the
NAWBO-OC board to increasing levels of participation among businesswomen in
Orange County. She adds, “I invite everyone, who has not yet experienced what we have
to offer at NAWBO, to join the heart and energy of our organization.”

Joining Carian as 2007-08 officers are: Cassie Hoag, President-Elect, Equity Architects
LLC; Camille Jayne, Immediate Past President, Matters at Hand; Lydia Welton,
Secretary, TEAMsmarts; Josefina de la Cruz, CPA, Treasurer, Josefina de la Cruz
Accounting; and Kimberly Gerber, Vice President, Member Services, Excelerate, Inc.

With nearly 400 members, the National Association of Women Business Owners-Orange
County (NAWBO-OC) positions women business owners for profits, power and the
passionate pursuit of excellence. The organization provides encouragement and support,
networking opportunities, educational programs and professional development. There are
almost 100 NAWBO chapters in the United States, and representations in 35 countries
worldwide. The Women’s Business Institute (WBI) is a 501 c (3) non-profit organization
formed by NAWBO-OC to provide educational opportunities for women business owners
in Orange County, including classes, workshops and scholarships.
