WIB's committees are the heart of the organization. Every committee plays an integral role in aiding Women in Business function as the large, well-oiled machine that it is. Each committee is composed of a chairperson (a board member), at least one co-chairperson (a prospective or inducted member), at least one assistant (a prospective or inducted member), and several committee members (prospective and/or inducted members). The structure of each committee, however, is up to the discretion of the committee chair.
