Lake of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women's Association

The Heart of the Ozarks Professional & Business Women was chartered in 2006. The mission of PBW is to enhance women’s lives professionally and personally. 

The organization sponsors one major event each year to raise money for local charities and scholarships. QuarterMania is held in March. Proceeds from the annual event fund scholarships for working women wanting to continue their education. In addition to awarding local scholarships, PBW makes annual contributions to several Lake area charities. In 2019 these charities were: Citizens Against Domestic Violence, Kids' Harbor, the Hope House, The Community Foundation of the Lake, Share the Harvest, and the Lamb House.
