Member Only Events:

One of the benefits of being a member with the WIB is being able to attend our annual Member Only Events in August. Past events have included wine tastings, cruises on the St. Croix River, a motor coach trip to Vino in the Valley Winery, group bowling, and intimate gatherings at local restaurants and bars. These events are offered at a discount to our members.

WIB Members are encouraged to attend the monthly Chamber Happy Hour, the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 5 to 7 p.m. at various locations for a great networking opportunity. Visit the Chamber website at for each month’s location.



Join us on Thursday August 24, 2017 at the next Cottage Grove Area Women in Business Networking event. This will be our Annual August Social Gathering, rather than a business meeting.

There will be indoor and outdoor spaces, time for informal networking and socializing, yard games, appetizers, beer, wine and lemonade. Please bring a friend and come enjoy a fun and free evening.

Membership is 50% off now through October 20th! One year memberships will be $25 for a current member of any Chamber of Commerce, or $37.50 for non-chamber members! Take advantage of this great deal and save some money too.

We will also be holding our annual school supply drive in August. Please bring them along to this event, or drop them off at Cottage Grove Eyecare Clinic or the chamber office during regular business hours.

The Cottage Grove Area Women in Business provides a forum for local women in business to meet, network and exchange ideas while growing professionally and personally with dynamic speakers on topics of interest to business women.

All are welcome – need not be a member to attend

Meeting: Thursday, August 24, 2017
Time: 5:00-7:00 pm
Location: Hamlet Park Pavilion- 8883 Hamlet Ave. Cottage Grove, MN
