    The Rural Women in Business Conference (RWIB) is an annual conference held in June created for entrepreneurial women in the Airdrie and Area region who are passionate about developing and growing vibrant, sustainable businesses. The RWIB Conference is brought to our region as a collaboration between the Airdrie and Crossfield Chambers of Commerce. This year's theme is Resilience! Our format will remain mostly the same as in previous years, with informative workshops from business experts, a dynamic & inspiring keynote presentation by Leslie Horton, Global News Calgary, a panel discussion, networking opportunities, plus fun and interactive additions to keep you engaged. Attendees will be entered to win great prizes and enjoy a meal and snacks together! The RWIB Conference has a proven track record of bringing women together to provide them with the tools, strategies and connections for their evolving businesses and lives. We look forward to seeing you there!
