Women of the Year Banquet

SWAN annually celebrates and honors outstanding Skagit County women for their success and contributions to the community as business leaders, innovators and visionaries.

Please join us on October 18, 2018, as we celebrate each of our 2018 SWAN Women of the Year nominees, and as our honorees share their powerful stories of personal growth and community involvement with banquet attendees.

We hope you will mark your calendars and join us for this very special evening!

Sip wine and network

An annual event held in May to gather professional women in Skagit County to socialize and network.

We will sip wine and enjoy light appetizers.

It is also the evening that we kickoff our Women of the Year nomination and scholarship application period. 

The next Sip Wine And Network will be early May 2019.

Bring your business cards and be prepared to meet fascinating business women like yourself!

Women of the Year selection SOCIAL

Each year, the SWAN Board of Directors invites previous Women of the Year and various members of our community to serve on our Selection Committee for the Women of the Year. At our Selection Social, the Selection Committee meets and speaks privately with each of the Women of the Year finalists and then provides the SWAN Board with their final selections.

This is a fun, social evening; finalists are invited to bring their nominator to join in the festivities.

This year, the Selection Social will be held early September 2019 at Max Dales Chop House in Mt. Vernon. For additional information, please email
