Established in 1978, and is one of the oldest and most encompassing network/referral sources for business women. It is the mission of WWIB to promote a positive image of professional women in business while developing leadership skills, strength through mutual support, mentoring and opportunities for business and personal growth.

The organization’s main event each year is the WWIB Professional Woman of the Year Banquet held each October. The event has grown in recognition and stature over the years and draws over 300 people who come to honor the communities’ professional women.


Whatcom Women in Business is comprised of business owners and managers developing and maintaining proactive role models within the organization and the community at large. Through teaching, learning, leadership and peer support, we strive to exemplify and promote the four areas we honor- leadership, professionalism, mentoring, and community.

The organization supports and promotes education by offering educational scholarships each year to women desiring to further their education.
