The WRC has come a long way, but we have more work to do. Our focus has always been on direct business assistance and education, but we are now moving to the next level. We are creating a Chamber that makes dynamic, enhanced business assistance available to every one of our members.
We look forward to having you join us.

Levels of Membership
Under our new services model, the WRC now categorizes our members into four groups based upon their relationships with one another. The first group is our Associates. These are business owners who often need certain skills beyond their own area of expertise in order to succeed and/or thrive. The second group is our Leaders, who offer those services that most of us need in order to successfully run and/or manage our organizations. The third group is our Champions, who have made a special commitment to support the WRC’s support of our business community, and the final group is our Civic Underwriters. These are the leaders who have made an extraordinary commitment to our entire community. Each group has varying dues levels based upon their number of employees.
