About the Women's Business Center Organization (WBCO)
We're more than a networking group. We're business owners, professionals and entrepreneurs who come together to learn and support one another with education and professional development resources and events. You're invited to join us!
The WBCO hosts monthly educational workshops, on the second Tuesday of the month, September through May. Now in our 9th year, our luncheon workshops feature dynamic speakers who share their skills, experience and knowledge on topics of particular significance to business and professional women. These workshops are open to those who register in advance; free for members and $25 for non-members. Please visit our events page to learn more about this year's workshop schedule.
Our Mission Statement
We achieve our mission of Educating Women on Best Practices in Business by: providing regular learning opportunities for women in business - both professionals and business owners; presenting topics and subject matter that empower women and inspire the entrepreneurial spirit; and supporting and advancing the business and entrepreneurial potential of women in our community.
