JOIN A COMMITTEE
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.
As of Fall 2022, WIB has the following committees available:
The Alumnae Relations committee is chaired by the Vice President of Alumnae Relations and is responsible for organizing and managing monthly alumnae events, as well as generating a monthly alumnae newsletter. The goal is to build a network between WIB members and alumnae.
Development & Rotations
Members will have the ability to experience what it's like working in a committee other than their own. For a month-long period, members will learn about a new committee's roles, be trained on the committee's day-to-day operations, and support the VP of the committee and other committee members with all necessary tasks.
