ABWA is looking for leaders

MyChelle actively supports ABWA and wants members to know that ABWA is looking for leaders at the local and national level. By participating in leadership opportunities, women not only take advantage of an opportunity for personal growth, but also have a chance to expand their professional network. Becoming active as a leader in ABWA is a great way for women to not only develop leadership, organization, training and speech skills through hands-on experience, it is also a great way for them to give back to ABWA. Members find that it is definitely worth the commitment, whether serving at the local or national level.
