Novi Oaks Charter Chapter

The Novi Oaks Charter Chapter is a non-profit business league in The American Business Women's Association, which was founded on September 22, 1949.


The Novi Oaks Charter Chapter was founded on January 29, 1990 by Bettie Archer Johnson (1923-2017), a 50-year member and a dedicated advocate for all women.


ABWA is a premier women's organization that provides business-relevant speakers, seminars, and hands-on leadership opportunities. Members gain skills in face-to-face communication, collaboration, and relationship-building, which are particularly important skills for younger workers. Although it is not guaranteed, many members make connections that lead to future business, and sometimes, lifelong friendships.

Regular meetings on the second Wednesday of the month begin at 6:00 p.m. with networking and dinner. Meetings feature a speaker and a short chapter meeting. Pre-registration is required with two options: $22 includes dinner and $10 does not include dinner. Visit our Events page for details on the meetings.
