New Braunfels Women's Business Alliance

A committee of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, the Women's Business Alliance creates an environment where women can connect, learn from their peers, and grow their network. The WBA provides professional and leadership development, as well as networking and marketing opportunities through monthly luncheons, quarterly mixers and the Annual New Braunfels Women's Conference.

The mission of the New Braunfels Women's Business Alliance is to increase success of women in business through a forum of continuing education and networking. Additionally, the WBA shares its success with the next generation of women through the provision of educational scholarships to local high school girls.

FAQs

  • What's the difference between having a Chamber Membership versus a WBA Membership?  

    The New Braunfels Women's Business Alliance is an official committee of the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce. If you or your business of the Chamber, participation in the WBA is included and you do not have to pay any separate dues. 

    If you are not a member of the Chamber, you can still participate in the Women's Business Alliance by paying the $150 annual dues. This only gives you access to events hosted by the Women's Business Alliance. Should you wish to attend Chamber Mixers or participate in other Chamber Committees, you will need to either join the Chamber or "upgrade" your WBA Membership to a full Chamber Membership.

    Additionally, if you are not a Chamber Member, you cannot serve in a leadership position with the WBA (Chair/Vice Chair).

  • What does "upgrading" my WBA membership mean?  

    If you sign up to be a WBA member at $150 and later decide (within the year that you signed up) to become a Chamber member, you can pay for Chamber dues minus the $150 already paid. You will be invoiced again for Chamber dues on the original date that you signed up for WBA. 

    Learn more about joining the Chamber here.

  • If I'm a member, why do I still have to pay to attend the monthly luncheons?  

    All attendees pay $20 to attend the monthly luncheons, including Chamber members, WBA only members and guests. In addition to your membership dues, the $20 helps covers the cost of the room rental and provided meal. Remaining funds assist with operating expenses, funding our scholarship program, etc. 

  • Can guests attend WBA events?  

    Yes, guests are always welcome to attend WBA luncheons and mixers, but may not receive all benefits of the event (free drinks at mixers, entry into raffle prizes, etc). Guests will be asked to either join the WBA or Chamber by the third visit - you won't regret it!
