The Saline Area Chamber's networking group for women -  Saline Women in Business (WiB) - was launched in March, 2016.  This group was created to provide a networking and social group for professional women in the Saline
area and is open to any woman looking to connect with other women for networking, learning and support mixed in
with a good dose of fun.  The Saline WiB meets on 4th Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:00pm at local restaurants for a casual and fun "Social Hour".
