2021 WBE Officers

President: Kathy Kowalczyk

Vice President: Joelle Pehrson

VP Membership: Julie Hartman

Secretary: Cynthia Cobb

Treasurer: Ruth Shirley-Streicher

Because WBE was founded in 1988, many of our members are now enjoying retirement. This presents a great opportunity for us to welcome new members as many business categories have become available. We are currently meeting via Zoom rather than onsite. We invite you to connect with like-minded women business owners and expand your network! Get to know us from the comfort of your own home via Zoom and then join us in person when Covid regulations allow.

Please address your questions to and the appropriate Officer will get back to you as soon as possible.


Meeting Location

1st & 3rd Thursday each month at 7:15am
18490 W. Old Gages Lake Road, Gages Lake, IL 60030

COVID-19 Location Update:  Until it is completely safe to meet again onsite, we are meeting via Zoom and getting just as much accomplished! We welcome new members at any time.
