Becoming a Member

This guide is for those joining WIBN for the first time. If you need to renew an expired membership, you may wish to reference this guide.


Visit the Chapters page of the WIBN website

This page will give you a list of all active Chapters displayed alphabetically by state.  


Select a Chapter to join

If you see a Chapter you'd like to join, just click the "Join Now" button under that specific Chapter. That will take you to the corresponding membership application. 

If you don't see a Chapter that works for you, scroll to the bottom of the page. You can either join the national group as an at-large member or you can request info about starting a new Chapter in your area.

Enter your email to start the application

If you've never been a part of the network, it will take you right the application.

If you have been a part of the network before, the system may recognize your email address. You'll then see a message saying that it sent you an email with a verification link. Once you open the email and click the corresponding link, it will return you to the membership application and will pre-fill all of the information we may already have so that you don't have to enter it again.

Pay your first year membership dues

After you've completed the appropriate fields, you'll see a standard cart and checkout. The system will store your credit information to make future renewals easier. But, you will be notified prior to the next renewal. So, if you don't wish to continue with your membership, you'll have the chance to cancel before the renewal.
