Join us at the January meeting as Women’s Business Council kicks off another great year!

This year’s annual organizational meeting will feature presentations from committee chairs on ways to get involved, updates on where our group is heading, AND TONS OF RAFFLE PRIZES! Everyone who attends will be entered for a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes donated by our member businesses. You'll receive an additional raffle ticket if you bring a guest!
In exchange for your generous donation to the raffle drawing, you will get 60-seconds to tell us a bit about your business and you will receive an additional raffle ticket. It’s a win-win-win!

Win prizes, advertise your business, and get excited for what WBC has in store for 2020!

RSVP by January 17 for $15 rate. 

After January 17, pay $22 at the door.



It's time to renew your membership with Women's Business Council. We valued your 2019 participation and encourage you to renew your membership for an exciting 2020 experience.

Membership dues help fund the luncheon programs, networking events, community service projects, website and social media activities and the JumpStart Scholarship program.
This year we provided 2 high school senior ladies with $500 scholarships. We provided numerous networking opportunities: painting door hangers and a cooking class at Grovestone to name a few. We provided rides for a Family Services client from her dialysis and supported the American Cancer Society.

If you would like to prepay your luncheon fees for the entire year, it would be $165 which locks in the discounted price of $15, one month free and automatic registration each month. Prepaid luncheons are not refundable but can be used by a guest or another member if you are unable to attend that month. 



After hearing Nancy Fahey speak last year, many of you had expressed that you were sorry to miss the Illini Women's Basketball game, so we are going to do it again this year! Come meet up with your WBC ladies on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at the State Farm Center to cheer on your Illini Women's Basketball Team against Purdue!  The game starts at 2 pm, so let's meet at Houlihan's at 12:00 pm for a drink, brunch, or some snacks!  Then, we'll leave Houlihan's at 1:30 pm to walk over and get a section together... tickets are typically only $3 - $5 per person!  We will post something online... please RSVP and let us know if you or any guests plan to attend!
