When women get together, amazing things happen.  And that’s just what the American Business Women’s Association’s membership options are all about – women joining forces to further themselves both professionally and personally to amazing proportions.

Development: Knowledge is power and businesswomen need a resource they can turn to for information about a wide variety of topics:

  •     Leadership development programs
  •     ABWA KU MBA Essentials
  •     ABWA KU Management Certificate Series
  •     In depth business skills training
  •     Continuing education certificate programs
  •     Tuition reimbursement for approved accredited classes

Networking: Making contact with business-savvy professionals puts women ahead.  When you join an ABWA chapter, you become a member of a ready-made professional network with unlimited potential for expanding your own network of contacts.

Recognition: Nationally, each year ABWA recognizes 10 members as the Top Ten Business Women of ABWA, and one is chosen as the American Business Woman of ABWA. Locally, our chapter selects a Woman of the Year.  This woman demonstrates her involvement in her local chapter; community/ civic activities; along with significant career, leadership, and educational accomplishments.  She is "crowned" and is chosen to be the chapter representative at the Association’s national convention.

Women in Business: Women in Business, the award-winning bimonthly national magazine, features informative articles covering a range of topics that are of interest to businesswomen and entrepreneurs.  Women in Business is a primary source of ABWA member information, providing updates on Association events and members’ activities and accomplishments.

Extras: Members also receive benefits from our national corporate sponsors, who support ABWA in its efforts to further the careers of women. These companies offer discounts on everything from office supplies and car rentals to travel expenses. Our local chapter supports young women with college scholarships. This practice offers personal gratification to the members as we are able to help someone in financial need, not to mention the educational and career benefits to the recipient.

The "sisterhood" of ABWA will bring you friends for life.  We are women that support you in every aspect of life.  Whether life brings career accomplishments, births, weddings, funerals divorces, etc. an ABWA sister will be close by.

Whether you are actively seeking to advance to the next level, or to stay current with business trends and skills; whether you dream of breaking out on your own or are running your own business; whether you are looking to stay active in retirement, are a stay-at-home mom ready to reconnect or are a full-time student looking to explode onto the job scene – ABWA has a membership option that is right for you.
