Women's Business Council

The Women’s Business Council is a group of women who lead several woman-empowering events each year. Their annual Legacy Gala honors local women with the Trailblazer of the Year, Elizabeth Foster and other awards. The WBC also hosts an annual December luncheon that highlights local business women and the Women’s Intentional Leadership Conference.

The WBC Mission: Connecting, mentoring & developing businesswomen in our community to achieve the highest levels of success by providing educational and networking opportunities for growth and achievement in all stages of business.
