UPCOMING EVENTS & PROGRAMS
A NOTE FROM WIBA PRESIDENT, ALICIA HOLLOWAY
WIBA Members,
 
It was wonderful to see some of you at our July events! Socially distanced and masked, we still enjoyed reconnecting. We will continue to provide opportunities for you and your guests in August, while observing all safety guidelines.
 
Coming up: The Women’s Leadership Alliance luncheon (WWLA) on August 4 is one you will not want to miss; Coleen, owner of South Seneca Car Care will share her incredible story - and incredible it is! Our monthly luncheon on August 11 will feature Greg Bennett who will show us how to boost sales during this challenging time. You will leave with 10 new ideas you can implement immediately.

We will also enjoy the Simply Social mixer on August 18 at Exploration Place. Enjoy visiting with members and touring the wonderful exhibits at no charge.
Dawn Monroe will lead a PowerPoint Educational Seminar on August 20. Both in-person and virtual attendance is available. Our social media channels will be busy as well; look for our Member Monday posts, where we showcase our newest members! Please take a quick minute to welcome them to WIBA, it would mean a lot to them.
 
Our new Coffee and Conversation breakfast event was a hit! We are going to do it again in late August; stay tuned for the date and location.
 
Moving forward: WIBA will continue to provide opportunities for learning, developing relationships and fostering the success of our members. We understand and respect that some of you may not be able to attend events just yet, but we can’t wait to see you later this year.
WELCOME OUR NEW MEMBERS!
