New! Business start-ups and women owned businesses have grown exponentially over the years. ABWA recognizes the growth in sole proprietorships within its membership. This year ABWA has partnered with two institutions, BB&T and Securian Financial Group, who are experts in the field of starting a business or growing your current business. Each company will offer a timely seminar, scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 10. The seminars are open to all attendees, no matter which track you have selected for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Limited seats are available, pre-registration is required.

Electric” is just one way of describing America’s #1 show band: The Voltage Brothers, who will open this year’s opening general session’s 70th Anniversary Launch Party at the National Women’s Leadership Conference. Performing top hits from every genre, The Voltage Brothers’ repertoire consists of your favorite R&B, swing, Carolina beach music, disco, funk, hip hop, jazz, Motown, pop and even classic rock hits.

ABWA’s Hand of Friendship breakfast, in honor of Inner Circle and 25-year members, is proud to welcome Courtney Clark. Courtney works with people who want to adapt faster and achieve more.

The Saturday afternoon general session will feature a keynote presentation from Dan Thurmon.

A recent inductee to the prestigious “Speakers Hall of Fame,” Dan delivers experiences that go beyond motivation, teaching concepts and skills in a highly engaging and entertaining manner. He will enhance your life experiences and professional endeavors with purposeful, positive contributions.
