About Orillia Business Women’s Association

 OBWA Logo jpg
Founded in 1987, The Orillia Business Women’s Association is a non-profit, non-fundraising group that gathers for the purpose of networking. We meet every second Wednesday of each month at the Best Western Mariposa & Conference Centre on Memorial Ave. A Networking table is set up for us to display our business cards and a small amount of product or information handouts. Dinner is served at 6:30 ( the cost is $30 for Members or first time guests) Non-members pay $37 after dinner there is a presentation by our guest speaker for that evening. A one year Membership is only $70 per year. We take the summer (July/Aug.) off and meetings resume in September.

All women are welcome.

Woman & Young Woman of the Year Event
Every year, the OBWA hosts the Nelle Carter Woman of the Year Awards & Lisa Brooking Young Woman of the Year Awards. The Woman of the Year Award is given to someone respected for her outstanding work in her community, in the workplace, at home, or all three. The Young Woman of the Year must demonstrate high scholastic achievement, participation in extra school activities, volunteer work in the community and be seeking post-secondary education.
About the Executive Committee

The Executive Committee is elected for a one-year term and meets on the first Monday after the OBWA Dinner each month to review and plan the operation of the Association. This group makes policies for the club and keeps things running smoothly. Motions affecting the members-at-large are brought forward at the dinner meetings and voted on by the members present. Ideas and suggestions are always welcome.
