The purpose of the site visit is for the committee to observe how the business is run, and verify that there is in fact a woman at the helm. You don't have to prepare anything for this site visit; the committee wants to see business as usual. For Mobley, the interview part was a little daunting, but after going through it, her advice is to have confidence in yourself.

At that point, you don't want to try to pull the wool over anyone's eyes, because you're not going to make it. At NWBOC, the review committee meets one final time to make their determination, and if the business gets awarded certification, they will receive a certificate that states their new status as a women-owned business enterprise. If for some reason there is a discrepancy with your application and you are denied certification, the NWBOC allows you 30 days after the time of notification to appeal the decision.
You then have to wait one year before you can apply again. However, Harris-Lange says there has only been one time in the history of NWBOC that a business owner went through the entire process and was denied.

Once You're Certified Congratulations! You made it through the certification process. Now it's time to use the distinction to your advantage.

Mobley says the best way to get word out that you are certified is to contact local, state, and national certification agencies and ask to get put on their mailing list. When you get certified through NWBOC, you automatically become part of the organization's database, in which a wide range of buyers have access.
Additionally, Mobley says Insight makes mention that they are a certified women-owned enterprise on their marketing and promotional materials, which is an easy way to let potential customers know about your distinction. Lastly, once you are certified you have to maintain the certification by applying for renewal every year. If you don't renew your certification every year, it will expire after that first year. Thankfully, the renewal process is much simpler and streamlined compared to the initial application.
Check with your certification agency for their renewal procedures. No additional information is required for re-certification, unless the structure, ownership, or name of your business has changed during that year.

The application and affidavit must then be filed with the most recent tax return for the business. Make sure that you allow ample time before your expiration date to send in the recertification materials. Harris-Lange's most crucial piece of advice to business owners is not to get lazy about the renewal process, because if your certification expires you have to start the application process all over again.

The 51% Minority: How Women Still Are Not Equal and What You Can Do About It
What should women do about a male boss who never says anything overtly sexual, but who tends to give unsolicited back rubs or pats on the knee? Of course, whenever there's a discussion about "women's issues," a danger exists that the conversation will turn dour and humorless and chase all the men from the room — but I can assure you, that is not my agenda. Yes, it includes some stats and figures, but it wasn't written in some ivory tower or special-interest think tank.
It is much more a book to be dog-eared, highlighted and used as the need arises. Where women are no longer routinely let go because their employers deem them to be too fat or too old to do their jobs. Where health insurance plans cover contraception for women, just as often as Viagra is covered for men.
