The Women Business Owners Alliance provides education, inspiration and networking opportunities to women in business in Western Massachusetts.

WBOA hosts monthly breakfast meetings, featuring engaging speakers, presenting a range of topics relevant to the lives of business women.  These breakfasts also provide ample opportunities for networking both before and after the meeting. Typically, there are 50 - 60 members and guests in attendance. Breakfast meetings are held beginning in September of each year through June.  

Our evening events, WBOA After 5 - Connections and Cocktails, are offered on the first Thursday of every other month. These gatherings include plenty of casual networking between the 50 - 60 members and guests. A brief but informative business-related talk is given by one of our members, the wildly popular Speed Networking along with an opportunity to visit with a select handful of vendors and sponsors. After 5 Socials are held beginning in September of each year through June.

WBOA also connects its members by organizing additional social and educational events throughout the year.  Two very special events include our annual Women's Night of Comedy and the annual Woman of the Year award dinner where we honor two of our own as well as ten deserving women in business from around the Valley.
