On behalf of the Board of Directors of PBWC, I am pleased to welcome you to the region’s premier organization for professional women.

2014 marked a major milestone for PBWC. Twenty-five years ago, Congresswoman Jackie Speier convened the first annual PBWC Conference. In the years since, PBWC has hosted a succession of challenging, inspiring and thought-provoking speakers who have shared stories of courage, adversity, ambition and leadership-touching the hearts, stimulating the minds, and transforming the lives of thousands of women and men.

PBWC exists to catalyze your professional development:

  • Expand your network,
  • Sharpen your skills,
  • Inspire your ambitions, and
  • Develop your professional talents to their fullest potential.

If you have not already joined PBWC, please do so in this – our 26th year. Join as a General Member. Or, upgrade your participation and come aboard as an Advantage Member. You may even want to contribute to the cause as a volunteer. At any level of PBWC membership, you will benefit from a wealth of educational resources, inspirational events, and powerful networking opportunities.
Working together as the Professional BusinessWomen of California, we will move our members forward and increase access to managerial positions, executive offices, and board appointments. United, we can and will transform our vision of 50/50 representation from aspiration to actuality.

Warmest regards,
Nicole Soluri
PBWC Board Chair
