Executive Women’s Council


Empower the Experience – New Executive Women’s Council

The Las Vegas Chamber introduces the creation of the Executive Women’s Council. This new council was developed to create a network of female leaders equipped with the skills, insight, and passion needed to work collaboratively and to positively enhance the business community of Southern Nevada. The purpose is to elevate women’s careers to the highest levels in the workforce and community through training, mentoring and relationship-building. This program will provide useful tools to help women meet their career and life goals and will focus on community engagement.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship and collaborative support of our President’s Club Member, SCE Federal Credit Union, our exciting new Executive Women’s Council is on the way to a great inaugural year of empowering experiences.

Due to an overwhelming response, the 2019 Executive Women’s Council has reached capacity and is no longer accepting applications this year. Please check back in 2020 for new opportunities. We look forward to welcoming new applicants in the future!

Annual dues are $425 per council member; space is limited. Program sponsorships are also available. For more information, contact Member Engagement Liaison Grecia Small at 702.641.5822.
