The Crossfield and Airdrie Chambers of Commerce are proud to work together to bring the Rural Women in Business conference to our communities and beyond for a live, in-person event! 

The Rural Women in Business Conference is created for entrepreneurial rural women who are passionate about developing and growing vibrant, sustainable businesses.
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, and more! Leslie will be speaking on her broadcasting journey, her life as a working mother, and her recent recovery from cancer. You do not want to miss her story that will include laughter and tears.

The RWIB Conference has a proven track record of bringing women together to provide them with the tools, strategies and connections for the evolving businesses and lives. See you there!
