The Experience Women’s Network “XWN” program is for existing and new Women’s Network members who want to better understand what Women’s Network is, how it works and how it is beneficial to YOU and the company you work for. If you follow the program, you’re sure to have a rewarding experience as a Women’s Network member. Get the most of your membership and join in on the fun!

The XWN program is full of networking events including attendance at the annual Athena banquet, a New Member Welcome, a monthly luncheon and many more.* The deadline to complete the XWN program each year is April 30.

At the May monthly luncheon each year, we host XWN graduation and recognize the XWN graduates and their businesses! The graduates will be recognized on stage with a certificate and XWN pin and will celebrate at an annual Mixer in June. We look forward to our next annual graduation and hope to see YOU as a graduate!
