How membership works

WSWE offers individual memberships for women who are majority owners of their own enterprises in the Chicago suburbs.

We also offer individual affiliate memberships for women who are founders, partners or executives in their own Chicago-area businesses, whether or not their enterprises are 100% woman-owned.

Corporate affiliate memberships are available to organizations who would like to connect with women entrepreneurs in our area. Member organizations may designate up to two individuals who will attend regular WSWE meetings.


JOIN ANYTIME with pro-rated dues

Individual members enjoy a special introductory rate of $240 in their first year of membership. Our pro-rated dues also make it easy for new members at all levels to join WSWE anytime and pay only for the months they use.

How it works: If say you join WSWE as a new individual member after the programming year begins July 1, you will pay just $20 per month for the months left in the year. So for example, if you join in February you will pay for 5 months of membership (Feb-June), or $100.

When the new programming year begins, all first-year individual members are eligible to renew at $270, our standard individual rate. Please see below for all membership levels and rates.
