The Women's Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA) Forum Meeting is a committee of certified WBEs (local WBEA members and joint members). This committee meets once a month to allow the voice of WBEA members to be heard.  

Each month the Forum hosts an educational session called "Straight Talk". As a part of the Forum meeting the WBEA invites a local corporate member to educate WBEs on their company and any current or upcoming contract opportunities. This "Straight Talk" is open to any WBE that is certified through a Regional Partner Organization of WBENC, not just local WBEA members.
