Lake of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women's Association

The Heart of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women was chartered in 2006. With only 13 charter members to begin, the organization is now over 40 strong and growing — making it one of the largest chapters in the state. The mission of PBW is to enhance women’s lives professionally, politically and personally. The chapter is comprised of dedicated volunteers and accomplishes an array of tasks through committee participation.

The organization sponsors one major event each year to raise money for local charities and scholarships. QuarterMania is held in March. Proceeds from the annual event fund scholarships for working women wanting to continue their education. In addition to awarding local scholarships, PBW makes annual contributions to several Lake area charities. In 2016 these charities were: Citizens Against Domestic Violence, Kids' Harbor, the Hope House, The Community Foundation of the Lake, Share the Harvest, and the Lamb House.

The chapter meets monthly the first Wednesday of the month, alternating between lunch and dinner meetings. Lunch meetings begin at 11 a.m. and dinner meetings start at 5:30 p.m. Each meeting features a speaker addressing a topic of interest to women, focusing on everything from health and business issues to car care and community issues.


We invite you to attend a meeting to learn more about our chapter.

Get involved and experience the camaraderie, friendships and fun that are accomplished through working together, supporting and believing in women in the Lake area. Members represent a diverse variety of businesses and interest.
