How did WBF™ start?
In 2002, Chanin Walsh Milnazik gathered a handful of friends and fellow business owners to talk about how they could build their businesses. She wanted to replicate a women’s networking organization she belonged to in Ohio. It offered an inspiring, safe and creative place to learn, network and collaborate without the pressure of referral quotas or competing with others in the same industry.  She also wanted it to be free so that anyone could participate. Fourteen individuals agreed to invest in the new organization as Founding Members, and WBF was born! After outgrowing several locations, WBF settled into its current meeting schedule and locations. Read more about our history in the Founder's Message and Our Story.

What do meetings cost?
Nothing! Our monthly programs and our Mastermind (brainstorming) sessions are ALWAYS free. Bring colleagues and friends. You can come to one or more of the Mastermind groups, although many people select one time and location and become a regular there. View our calendar to see upcoming events and locations.

What’s a Mastermind?
Mastermind meetings are informal gatherings where business owners come together to discuss challenges and offer solutions to help grow businesses. Bring your challenges and questions, and we'll brainstorm solutions in this open forum. In the true WBF spirit, we will come together to support each other in whatever way possible as we build our businesses. An experienced business owner will facilitate. View locations of our mastermind meetings.

Do you have to live in Bucks County?
No! Everyone is welcome.

Do you have to be female?
No! Everyone is welcome. In fact, men have always participated in the WBF and served in leadership roles. One is a Founding Member.

I want to do more. Can I get more involved?
Participate! We have many opportunities for our members to get involved. Many WBF committees are seeking volunteers. Learn more about volunteering your time or contact us for more information.

How can I be on the Board?
To be considered for the Board, you must be a Supporting or Margaret Mead member and have been active in the organization for at least six months.  To express your interest and qualifications, please  contact us.
