By creating a hierarchy of leadership, the Women in Business organization is able to implement meaningful events, execute new initiatives each year, and focus on the professional development of its members. Members can expect to gain significant leadership and teamwork experience by participating in WIB. There are three types of membership roles in the Women in Business organizational structure.
1. Executive Leadership Roles
Executive roles require significant levels of dedication, leadership skills, and strategic organizational vision. The President leads the organization with a solid commitment to relationship building and envisioning a strategic vision. The Vice Presidents report to the President and manage a branch of WIB. WIB has five branches: Finance, Marketing, Membership, Outreach, and Public Relations. These Vice Presidents ensure that the organization continues to produce new ideas, events, and procedures.
2. Director Leadership Roles
Each branch of WIB will consist of committees that are led by Directors that report to a Vice President. Directors will lead their teams on projects and responsibilities that will further the success of the organization and the personal and professional development of the members.
3. Associate Leadership Roles
Each director will lead a team of committed and driven individuals. These teams will consist of Associate members. Associate members are not expected to have a huge time commitment compared to those of Executives and Directors. However, the Associates will be expected to fully contribute and participate in the organization. Each Associate member will have unique responsibilities within their team and are expected to assist her Director. The committee sizes may range from 2 to 5 people.
