HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – The Women’s Business Center of North Alabama has a problem and hopes the community can help solve it before the end of the year.
WBCNA President and Chief Executive Officer Joanne Randolph said the 10-year-old organization has outgrown its current space at the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County on Church Street.
Since receiving the novation of the Small Business Administration’s TechRich contract in June, WBCNA has expanded operations by adding additional staff, including a project manager and deputy project manager. WBCNA also has three full-time employees, part-time support staff, business coaches and student interns.
“We offer one-on-one business coaching, workshop training, mentoring, matchmaking and networking opportunities,” Randolph said. “The bottom line is these activities require space, not only for our growing staff, but also to give entrepreneurs private space to meet with coaches and advisers.”
The WBCNA plans to move by the end of 2014 and is accepting suggestions for a new location. Randolph said they are interested in local properties that are large enough for WBCNA’s current and future staff members and have dedicated meeting spaces and suites for business coaching.

In a statement, Chamber President Chip Cherry said WBCNA’s recent expansion symbolizes the entrepreneurial growth taking place in Huntsville/Madison County.
“We’re proud of our association with WBCNA and believe that the service they provide to our small business community will continue to have a positive impact on the economy of our region,” he said. “We know that our partnership will continue to grow outside the walls of the Chamber.”
