When women get together, amazing things can 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. Not only do our members get the inside track on the issues facing their local communities, but they also are plugged into the trends and events that drive today's national businesses. Succeeding today is all about what you know, who you know and who knows you. And if you want to be successful, ABWA's chapters and networks give you the upper hand.


Knowledge is power. And businesswomen need a resource they can turn to for information about a wide variety of topics. They also need to know how to use that information to benefit themselves or their employers. To this end, ABWA members participate in the following professional development opportunities:

  • 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



Making contact with business-savvy professionals also puts women ahead. But networking is an art that many people have not perfected. That's why ABWA has made teaching its members this career-critical skill part of its mission. Plus, when you join an ABWA chapter or network, you automatically become a member of a ready-made professional network with unlimited potential for expanding your own network of contacts.


By its very nature, recognition is loaded with positive reinforcement. It is an essential component of effective development. Thus individual members are recognized for their efforts. Each year, in addition to national awards and recognition, local chapters and networks honor members who make significant accomplishments in education, leadership, and professional and civic activities.

Women IN Business. ABWA's National magazine is just one of the many benefits in joining the Association!

Women IN Business, the Association's award-winning bimonthly national magazine, features informative articles covering a range of topics that are of interest to businesswomen and entrepreneurs. Previous articles have dealt with subjects such as career reinvention, Web site development, human resources management and tax relief for women business owners. Past topics also include how to motivate your employees, things to take into consideration when starting a business, and hints on how to balance a career with motherhood. "IN " is a primary source of ABWA member information, providing updates on Association events and members' activities and accomplishments. The magazine also includes excerpts from today's powerful business books, which can be used to earn contact hours in the ABWA professional development program. Magazine subscription is free for ABWA members (annual dues include a one-year subscription); non-member subscriptions are available.
