ABWA’s Best Practicing Leagues

The Best Practices Approach is a quality management award that is built upon a set of concepts and core values reflected in most businesses today.  The Best Practices Approach is intended to support members in knowing and growing their value by providing opportunities to learn, rehearse and a master skill sets (goal setting, planning, fiscal management, communications, operations, negotiations, etc.), all of which are directly transferable to the workplace.  Chapters and Express Networks® meeting the standards for Best Practices are awarded the Best Practices Seal of Excellence for a period of one year.

“Achieving Best Practices at any level is not easy – if it was, everyone would do it.  Focusing on this goal every year is a great learning opportunity, and gives our members a united purpose.”  C. Glore, a member of the Oceanside Charter Chapter, a Level I Best Practices Chapter.
