Requirements and Dues

WIB Fall 2021 Members Information

All members have to earn 10 membership points to make membership. We strongly encourage members to be as engaged as much as possible to get the most out of WIB! We will have prizes for our members that attend the most General Meetings and Events.
This semester…
The purpose of the Women in Business point system is to ensure active members are participating in professional, educational, and social events to help foster personal growth. The requirements must be met in order to put Women in Business on your resume. At the beginning of the semester, potential members must complete an application and attend a membership meeting (this process is now closed for the fall semester. We are not accepting members until the spring semester). Once applicants are accepted, throughout the semester, they must:
  • Attend at least 4 general meetings
  • Attend 5 event points
  • Attend at least 1 philanthropy event point 

For a total of 10 points, consisting of 4 general meetings and 6 event points (one of which must  be a philanthropy point as stated above).

Awards are given at the end of the semester to the highest point leaders.

Membership meeting: ALL new members will be required to attend the membership meeting selected on their application. Afterwards, members must attend 4 out of 6 general meetings. You will be denied membership if you fail to attend a new membership meeting.

The top five members with the highest points will receive a special incentive for their efforts at the end of the semester.

*Failure to attend an event that you signed up for will result in an equivalent point deduction
*2 semesters of probation will result in termination of membership

Lean In Circle: All new members will be required to join a Lean In Circle. Previous members will be highly encouraged but not required to join.

For any questions or concerns, please contact the President, Cami Hunter, at camryn-hunter@uiowa.edu, or the VP of Technology, Christina Kaufman, at christina-kaufman@uiowa.edu.

Dues

For the Fall 2021 Semester, all dues given to the organization will be donations.

No members are required to pay a membership due at the start of the semester, but can give donations to the organization.

Membership donations typically cover a light dinner at each general meeting, provide snacks for certain events hosted by WIB, help pay for membership socials, and help cover the Professional Trip expenses.

Membership donations may be paid via cash or check.
