West Michigan is constantly receiving recognition for all it has to offer.

Great schools, festivals, housing, health care, and more make the list.

None of it would be possible without all of the great people.

Grand Rapids Business Journal is taking time to recognize some of those people with their list of "The 50 Most Influential Women In West Michigan".

The list is full of familiar and new faces.

You'll find heads of businesses and non-profits and representatives from a wide variety of industries.

It's a diverse group and some well-deserved recognition.

The women will be recognized at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel on March 4.

Who was missed and deserves honorable mention?
