Benefits of Your WBOC Membership

WBOC offers benefits to all women in business.  We have members who:

  • Are just starting their business (or maybe even just starting it in their mind!) -- or have years of experience as entrepreneurs
  • Own their own business -- or are employed by a business

What we all have in common is a desire to learn, mentor and move up to the next level -- to become the best we can be.

We participate with WomenTies and WISE, acknowledging that women can be stronger and make greater strides by all working and supporting each other, and not staying in silos.  We also support the new CNY United Way initiative to support women.

A more intimate way to meet and learn about each other and WBOC is by attending our monthly Open House Meet & Greet.

The main purpose of the Meet & Greet is to provide a way for potential and existing members to review the benefits available to them. Included:

  • Overview of the different types of meetings and how to make the most of your participation.

  • Marketing opportunities available to members.

  • Networking opportunities available.

All Member Meet & Greets are held virtually. Please register for link.

There is no charge to attend.


Connections Meetings

Connections Meetings are an opportunity to get together with a small group of WBOC exclusive members led by a host over a “dutch-treat” lunch or breakfast for the purpose of establishing stronger professional relationships. 

This is an excellent opportunity to talk in more detail about yourself and your business to other members of WBOC.  

Attendance numbers are determined by the host.  To attend, you need to register.
