What we're about

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

Morning Meetings are held the 3rd Thursday of the month. They feature engaging speakers, presenting a range of topics relevant to the lives of business women. These meetings also provide ample opportunities for connecting both before and after the meeting. Typically, there are 35 - 40 members and guests in attendance. A light breakfast is served.

Evening Workshops are offered on the last Thursday of the month. These gatherings provide 3 hours of information, training and practice on a variety of topics important to running your business. There is plenty of casual connecting between members and guests. Food is served.

Member Socials are a members-only event held at the home or business of a member and are held periodically throughout the year. Occasional WBOA outings are also arranged.

WBOA also connects its members by organizing additional social and educational events throughout the year. Two very special events include our annual Women of the Year Celebration where we honor our own as well as deserving women in business from around the Valley.

Come and learn ways to keep yourself together in spite of the odds!” * How do we get started working when we just don’t want to? * How do we begin our days to set a tone of ease and even joy? * How do we stop and appreciate what we have accomplished, and not focus on all that is still yet to be done?
