Host Council


This year WBEC-West is proud to be the Host Council for the annual National Conference & Business Fair being held in spectacular Las Vegas, Nevada as we celebrate 20 incredible years of WBENC!

The theme for this year’s conference is “Looking Back. To the Future.” As we look back on 20 years of WBENC making a difference, it is important for us to remember that the celebration is for all of the Corporate Members that have helped us thrive, the strategic partners that have help us prosper and the WBE’s that have helped us stretch into a true community.  We celebrate everyone that has been part of our past as well as everyone who will be joining the WBENC family in the future. 

I believe there are valuable lessons to be learned from the past. If you are willing to ask the right questions and take your answers into the future you can build stronger relationships, more powerful alliances, and more opportunities. We are excited to be part of WBENC as they Look Back into the past to celebrate the accomplishments of entire network and move To the Future, primed for WBENC’s continued success.   

I hope that you join us in Nevada as we celebrate all the rich elements of our past and lay the groundwork for an even more amazing tomorrow for the WBENC community. This conference is the largest event for WBEs in the U.S. and we are looking forward to record breaking numbers this year in Las Vegas Nevada! So on behalf of the WBEC – West Board & staff, safe travels and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s conference.
