Women's Business Council of Champaign County

Welcome to Women's Business Council of Champaign County




WBC Luncheon - Dec 19th 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


At our December 19th meeting, bring a wrapped gift valued at $15 and prepare for plenty of laughter and fun.  

Unlike a White Elephant exchange, the gift you bring should actually be a desirable gift whether it’s a beautiful ornament, a fuzzy blanket, your favorite book, a candle, games, a bottle of wine, home decor  .  . . the list goes on!

We’ll go over the rules in more detail at the luncheon, but for now, grab a gift, wrap it up, and we’ll see you on December 19th for some friendly gift stealing. 

CityView Banquet and Meeting Center at Illinois Terminal, 45 E University Ave, Champaign

Registration is $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 renew by December 31, 2019, the membership fee is only $75 for 2020. After that date, the fee is $90. 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. 

Thank you!
