WBON membership is open to woman business owners with day-to-day management responsibility, and to individuals who support WBON's mission and objectives. Note that membership is recorded in the name of the individual, not the organization or business. Membership dues are nonrefundable.

Member Categories

Woman Business Owner Member

A woman business owner member receives all communications and publications, is eligible for all discounts and benefits, and is listed in the online member directory. 

To qualify for membership, members must own a percentage of their company and be active in day-to-day management. Primary chapter membership is automatic for those whose businesses are located in a chapter area, and members statewide are encouraged to select and participate in chapter meetings whenever they can. 

Voting Membership: Voting empowers our members to directly impact the current and future movement of the organization with policies and processes.

Startup

For a woman business owner who established her business within the past two years, or is in a pre-launch phase, WBON offers a special introductory startup membership for one year. A Startup member receives all communications and publications, is eligible for limited discounts and benefits, and is listed in the online member directory.

Voting Membership: Voting empowers our members to directly impact the current and future movement of the organization with policies and processes.

Supporting Member

An Individual or Non-Profit Organizational leader who subscribes to the objectives of WBON and wishes to lend support to WBON through membership. This category of membership includes limited discounts and is listed in the online member directory.


The individual does not need to be a women business owner and this category includes passive investors and former or retired women business owners.

Non-Voting Membership

Gold or Champion Member-Partners

WBON members who join or renew their membership as either a woman-business-owner or a startup-woman-business owner are also eligible for two premium membership-partner packages for their business. (Gold Member-Partner, Champion Member-Partner.) Benefits include a tiered bundle of partner business marketing benefits including items such as increased website visibility, a conference exhibit table, business promotion in conference materials, and chapter and conference pass for a guest or employee. Each package reflects a significant value added over purchasing conference and event sponsorships individually. Please contact director@wbon.org for complete details.

The bundled member-partner decision must be made at the time of enrollment or membership renewal as partner benefits run in parallel to annual membership. 

New Member Combo Packages

If you registered for a conference or special event using a new member combination package and have not yet received your membership discount code, please contact Kendra. You will need to apply the code before confirming payment.
