ABWA first on the list of 9 Professional Organizations!
Updated: Nov 9, 2022
Brenda Barron's blog post on the "9 Professional organizations for women in business" (GoDaddy, March 9, 2017) featured the American Business Women's Association at the TOP of the list! Men are also welcome to join this great organization, and our members are diverse in demographics, career stages, and occupations. Students of all ages are welcome!
Novi Oaks members at the October 1, 2022, Autumn Brunch With Auction, where we raised $13,000 for scholarships and education for women.
Women and men looking to increase their business acumen, make connections, improve their professional profiles, take on leadership roles, AND help others succeed, cannot beat this opportunity. At $115 for the national membership fee plus local chapter dues ($24 per year for the Novi Oaks Charter Chapter in Michigan - rates vary by league), the benefits by FAR outweigh any cost. Student memberships are only $50 with no local dues in the Novi Oaks Charter Chapter.
The cost to attend a Novi Oaks meeting - second Wednesday of every month - is only $20 including dinner or $5 via Zoom. Visit our Events page to register.
