Women's Business Council of Champaign County


Women's Business Council is about making connections. 

Through our own events, activities at our luncheons and engaging in community events, we build friendships and business networks.

Join Us


 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! See you there!
