Join ABWA Today!

ABWA is a prestigious organization of thousands of professionals across the nation. The majority of members belong to one of hundreds of local Chapter or Express Networks across the country, providing additional opportunities for professional development and networking on a local level via monthly meetings. Membership in ABWA is open to everyone.

Through online business courses, insightful and timely seminars, and the opportunity to be part of both a local and national organization, ABWA has become the organization to join for women who want to connect, learn and grow.

Basic national membership dues for the American Business Woman's Association (ABWA) are $115 annually or $50 for a student membership. Please refer to our 2022-2023 Membership Brochure, "One Membership, A Lifetime of Value" for additional membership information.

Membership in the ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter is contingent on an ABWA National Membership and the timely payment of ABWA National annual dues, which are billed separately by the National organization. Oceanside Charter Chapter dues are $54 for general membership, $30 for those with a National student membership, and $42 for Seniors age 65 and above.
