Influential Women in Business Luncheon

On Wednesday, September 26th the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce hosted the annual Bi-Chamber women’s Luncheon with the Stateline Chamber. The emphasis this year was Influential Women in Business. With over 200 people in attendance, it was a great turnout for both chambers.


The committee comprised of members of both chambers, decided to integrate awards to the luncheon to give everyone the opportunity to lift up and recognize women in the workforce. Three awards were given: Executive Influencer, NextGen, and Role Model.


Overall 25 nominations were given and we were very excited to have several of the Stateline Chamber Members recognized. Ann Hankins, Marge Bauch, Michelle Matthys and Nikkie Chadwick were all nominated for Executive Influencer, Anabel Toye, Karrah Bittner, Kelly Maier, and Michelle Matthys were nominated for the NextGen Award, Angi Kolthoff and Marge Bauch were nominated for the Role Model award.


Special congratulations to Marge and Michelle who were both nominated for two awards, and Kelly Maier for being the recipient of the NextGen Award.


The Stateline Chamber is very proud of all of the women recognized. If you see them, be sure to congratulate them.
