Women's Civic Conference (WCC) holds monthly conferences for its members from September to May. Our topics include the court system, civics, legislation, education, health, and other pertinent issues.
Every spring, the WCC hosts a bus tour to key facilities within our civic, judicial and legislative systems for our members. Some of our past tours have visited:
In December, we donate to a charity which has a special connection to WCC for that year. Please see our archives for a list of who we have donated to over the years.
The mission of the WCC is to unite women’s groups of the community; to inform and be informed on local, state and national issues; to take action as individuals and through member organizations; and to present programs of general interest.

Women’s Civic Conference began in 1922 by a group of women dedicated to taking a more active role in civics post-19th Amendment, i.e., the women's right to vote. During those early years, the organization was called Women’s Court Conference.
Over the last 100 years, our speakers and guests have included governors, mayors, county executives, judges from all levels of judiciary, police chiefs, sheriffs, district attorneys, state and local legislators, civic leaders, business leaders, and community organization leaders.
As we enter our second century, the WCC will continue to provide a platform for women in our region to be informed on local, state and national topics and to take concerted action as both individuals and through member organizations.
