Knowledge is power and today you need a resource you can turn to for information about a wide variety of topics. You also need to know how to use that information to benefit yourself and/or your employer. Through ABWA, you will be able to participate in educational opportunities such as leadership developmental programs and business skills training courses, plus join fellow ABWA members in participating in professional, political and/or fun events.



Making contact with other business savvy professionals is what puts you ahead. Networking, though, is an art that many people have not perfected. ABWA meetings are tailored to practice this career critical skill and is part of its mission.
