About the Professional Women’s Council

The Professional Women’s Council (PWC) offers an opportunity for businesswomen to connect at a personal level. Although this council is not just for women, the focus is on elevating women in the workforce. PWC prides itself on relationship development among members and bringing in top speakers to educate and inform members about key topics. There are many opportunities to get to know members through meetings, socials, and community involvement projects. “Women Connecting Women” is the Council’s annual signature event.

The PWC meets on the first and third Wednesday of every month.

The first Wednesday meeting of the month takes place at 11:30 a.m., Maggiano’s Little Italy, and will feature a guest speaker.  The pre-registered cost is $35 for PWC members, $38 for non-members, and $45 for all at the door.

The third Wednesday meeting of the month will be a happy hour for members and guests to network at various locations. The cost is $20.
