Women Business Owners Alliance

Welcome to WBOA!

Enter the room, and you will feel a palpable energy and the hum of conversation as members of the Women Business Owners Alliance (WBOA) connect with colleagues and work to grow their businesses. Smart and savvy, they are developing ideas, brainstorming strategies, and, most importantly, they are building relationships with one another.

WBOA’s meetings are relevant, engaging, dynamic, and diverse. They provide education and inspiration to Western Massachusetts businesswomen in every stage of their business development. Led by a vibrant Board of Directors, WBOA offers a variety of monthly business and professional development opportunities geared towards helping women grow their businesses and reach their goals.
In addition to resources, ideas, and continuing education opportunities, the organization hosts WBOA Monthly Breakfast Meetings on the third Thursday of the month at the Summit View in Holyoke at 7:45 a.m., as well as a bimonthly WBOA After Five gatherings for women who want to network at the end of the day. Want a more casual way to get to know members?  Come to one of our WBOA Evening Socials

WBOA also sponsors several special events such as the Women’s Night of Comedy and a Woman of the Year celebration. As a sign that women in the WBOA are not just focused on business growth but also care about the community and its health, they donate the proceeds from the Women’s Night of Comedy to area nonprofits.

Come learn about WBOA. It’s your business. Don’t grow it alone!
