We're dedicated to fostering a dynamic community that connects women across all career levels, immerses them in the Lufkin/Angelina County business scene, and inspires success. Our Women's Network achieves this through impactful events, featuring prominent speakers, showcasing women leaders, and celebrating local contributions. Join us to build robust professional networks, foster collaboration, and celebrate women's achievements in Lufkin and Angelina County.

EMPOWER, where connections flourish, engagement is paramount, and inspiration leads to success.



We have two networking breakfasts during the year, held in February and August, hosted by a Chamber Investor. These events typically have 60-75 attendees. The breakfast is free to attend, but we recommend registering to help us better plan.



We hold four quarterly luncheons throughout the year, held in April, June, October and December. The first three highlights a featured speaker. In April, the ATHENA Award is presented to the selected recipient. The Athena Award is a nationally recognized achievement for a person who supports women in business.
