Fredericton & Area Women & Business Network

The WBN Fredericton brings together businesswomen from diverse occupations providing opportunities to network, build relationships and learn about issues and best practices in business.

Our membership consists of passionate and dedicated women entrepreneurs and women working in small and medium businesses. Each member brings their own valuable and unique experience and knowledge to the network. Together we learn from one another and work together to support each other’s business and the community.

Join us every fourth Tuesday of the month for an opportunity to tell someone about your business!

The WBN Executive Committee consists of volunteers who meet on a monthly basis for administration of the Network and to organize events. We’d love to hear from you.

President’s Message
September, 2017

Hello fellow ladies,

It is my honor to be the 2017-2108 President of the Fredericton & Area Women & Business Network. Having been a member for many years and on the Board in the membership role, moving into this position, is not something I take lightly. The previous Presidents since I’ve been a member have shown that it requires a lot of time and effort, but with a great board, such as we have, Beth Crowell, Maureen Schmidt, Germaine Pataki-Theriault, Leanne Murray, and Sherry Hamilton, we will have another great year of networking, training, fundraising, and having fun meeting new members and creating new friendships, while growing our businesses.
When I joined this network, I didn’t know anyone in it. I found it while surfing the internet. I hope if you are just finding this, you will decide to visit us at one of our monthly meetings to see the advantages of expanding your network and meeting new people. We have a full year planned focused on how we can help each other attain success in both business and in your personal lives. Our motto remains “Help Women In Business by doing Business with Women”.
Some highlights of the upcoming year will be hosted meetings at some of our members businesses, training sessions on social media and HR, and our annual Silent Auction at Gallery 78 which will be in support of Liberty Lane.
We will also be having our Annual Awards luncheon again next spring. We will again be honouring members of our network with special awards, and bringing in a fantastic speaker that everybody will want to hear speak. This event is a highlight of our year, and we encourage anybody who hasn’t attended one to attend this year to experience the magic of so many gifted women entrepreneurs in the same room.
Myself and the Board have planned a full and exciting year and we hope that you are able to attend and network with others and learn a thing or two at the same time. I look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new women in business in our area.
