The Women in Business (WIB) program recognizes and promotes leadership for women at all levels in the workplace. The Chamber holds annual meetings that feature various business and educational topics. WIB is also the Chamber’s platform for an annual award to honor women who have shown outstanding leadership qualities. 

The Jackie Wilson Women in Leadership Award was created to honor one individual each year. Recipients must possess outstanding leadership skills in community, business  or economic development.
