Our history

In the latter part of 2007, a small group of York County business women gathered to discuss the potential for growing their businesses through a networking group that would facilitate and encourage the exchange of referrals amongst its members. After some research, we learned of a group based in Western Pennsylvania who had several chapters that modeled what we were looking to accomplish. As a result, we were comfortable with becoming the first chapter of that group here in Central Pennsylvania.

As our group began to grow, we determined that in order to be truly successful in York, our operations needed more of a local presence. Back to the drawing board! With the help, ideas, and leadership of our members during that time, Women’s Referral Exchange Network (WREN) was incorporated on July 1, 2009. As a result, we’ve become the only non-chaptered, category specific women’s networking group based in York, Pa. Since that time we have held various seasonal and fundraising events to promote our organization, give back to the community, and basically have a lot of fun!
