WEBO NETWORK MEMBERSHIP BENEFITS

WEBO Network exists to serve its members, and strives to maximize the value of its memberships by providing a value-added forum designed exclusively for professional women to grow socially and professionally. WEBO Network provides both paid and complimentary levels of memberships:

  • Paid Member: Our experience has shown that our members experience success in proportion to the degree of commitment they give to their membership and active participation they experience with other members. To maximize our members’ opportunities, WEBO Network invests significant resources in developing benefits for our paid members, at various levels. Descriptions of the benefits available to you at each level are displayed under the MEMBER BENEFITS tab at WEBO Network.com. These benefits are subject to change at any time at the sole discretion of WEBO Network.  WEBO Network will provide notice of such change via email within 30-days of the date of the change.  You agree to keep your email address up to date for notices hereunder.
