Brenda Barron's blog post on the "9 Professional organizations for women in business" (GoDaddy, March 9, 2017) features the American Business Women's Association at the TOP of the list! Men are also welcome to join this great organization.
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 Greater Oakland Charter Chapter in Michigan - rates vary by league), the benefits by FAR outweigh any cost.
