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
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
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.
National magazine is just one of the many benefits in joining the
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.
