The Diamonds of Southbay chartered with the American Business Women's Association 16 years ago.  Since that time, we have built our chapter into a strong community of like minded women and men whose foal is to grow both professionally and personally.

Our guest speaker this month is our very own Arnedra Jordan.  Our chapter is committed to lifelong learning.  Whether you are just beginning your career journey, in mid-career or of retirement age, we can learn something new each day.  Don't miss Arnedra's impactful presentation.

Please join us as we build on the momentum of this chapter year.  Plan to be a part!
