The council is responsible for producing annual and quarterly events, including the Chamber’s Woman of the Year Luncheon. In addition, the council also hosts a bi-monthly Business Savvy Women’s Forum in which professional business women come together in a constructively challenging setting to discuss a range of issues that arise in their business and professional environment.
