Women in Business Subcommittees
WIB Committee Co-chairs:
A two-year term overseeing all subcommittees of the Women in Business group. Co-chairs organize and run monthly meetings.
This event is held each spring and is our major fundraiser for our scholarships. Local restaurants provide samples of their specialties to enjoy with wine from area wineries. Raffle donations provide a plethora of goodies to be awarded to ticket winners. Funds raised from this event, which have averaged $20,000 in recent years, go to local women who would like to further their education but do not have the funds to do so. This committee is divided into the following subcommittees: Restaurants, Facilities, Marketing, Raffles, and Development.
Each year at the Annual Awards Dinner, the WIB Committee awards scholarships to women continuing their education. Committee members solicit and receive applications for the Women in Business Scholarships, interview cndidates, and decide on scholarship recipeints.
