Welcome to the WPBW!

We are dedicated to community service and the elevation of standards for women in business and the professions. We are committed to extending opportunities for education to women who wish to begin or further their careers in the professional or business fields.

To pay tribute to community service we award the "Woman of the Year" to a Woodstock area resident who has given selflessly to her community by way of education, fine arts, or social service. Click on "Community Service" above for the nomination form and other information.

We also award the Frances Kuhn Scholarship each year to three women from the community, over the age of 22, who express a desire to return to school in order to further their careers in the business or professional fields. Click on "Education" above for further information and a scholarship application.
