2014 Chamber BWRT Executive Committee:


About the BWRT

The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Women's Round Table (BWRT) was founded in 2004 to offer professional women in our region opportunities for networking and professional development in a welcoming and collegial environment. Under the auspices of the Chamber of Commerce, the BWRT hosts monthly brown-bag lunch meetings, open to all Chamber members, on the third Thursday of every month.

In our continuing effort to maximize networking opportunities, all BWRT members can sponsor a monthly meeting during a short presentation known as the "Sponsor's Spotlight." Sponsorship is an excellent opportunity for members to promote their products and services to a varied and dynamic group of local professionals.

BWRT members represent many diverse fields and professions, including large and small businesses, non-profits, real estate, banking, education, and many more. Ultimately, what binds our group together is the idea that camaraderie and professionalism can be mutually sustaining goals.

The BWRT is also responsible for the annual Quadruplicity Women's Conference.
