2023 Network Certification Program is Now Closed

Congratulations 2023 Certified Networks

Women’s Council Network certification recognizes and rewards the most active local and state networks that achieve five key benchmarks of network excellence and exceeds basic charter requirements per its national affiliation and provides outstanding member service.

WHO is Eligible to Apply:
All Networks in good standing are encouraged to apply. The current President of the network must submit the application.
Any new network chartered in the fall of 2022 through now, should reach out to Jaclyn Flores, jflores@wcr.org for specific instructions.

The application period is now closed. Look for 2024 details in Summer 2024.

Networks will fill out an application, which serves as a self-assessment tool to determine whether the network is meeting (and exceeding) basic benchmarks that adhere to both the network model and completion of tasks and achievements that meet and exceed standards. It is recommended that networks begin the certification process early in the year and meet benchmarks by the application submission period (August to October), which provides a 7-month window to achieve benchmarks.
