A Jan. 27 press lease announced a new chamber committee called the Women’s Business Alliance will be formed following the absorption of the Women’s Chamber of Commerce into The Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce.

The new committee will support women in business through education and networking, and the chamber will provide facilities, membership management, staff support, administrative functions and guidance.

“We are so happy to serve the business women in our community and will continue to provide networking opportunities and beneficial speakers and events to help them in business today,” said Leigh Fetters, 2020 president of the former Women’s Chamber, in a press release.

Fetters will serve as the committee's chair; Ami Feller will be the vice chair; and Jenna Vinson will be the staff liaison.

The committee will host monthly luncheons, quarterly networking mixers, a scholarship program and an annual fashion show.


Current New Braunfels chamber members may participate in the Women’s Business Alliance at no additional cost.
