ABOUT ABWA IMPERIAL RIVER CHAPTER
The American Business Women’s Association Imperial River Chapter was launched on April 13th, 2016 specifically to serve the women of Estero and Bonita Springs, FL. At that time, other chapters existed in Southwest Florida, but none were convenient to the business women of the area between Fort Myers and Naples. ABWA Imperial River Chapter supports the national organization’s mission: to bring together business women of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support, and national recognition. Our chapter raises funds to help reimburse our membership, comprised of local business women, for conferences, seminars, continuing education credits, and other professional development pursuits.
