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.

In-person meetings begin at 6:00 p.m., and the Zoom begins at 6:30 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday of the month - featuring a program and short business meeting. Pre-registration is required - $20 includes dinner in person, and it costs only $5 for the Zoom. Visit our Events page for details.
