The Diamonds of Southbay chartered with the American Business Women's Association in the year 2000.  Since that time, we have built our chapter into a strong community of like minded women and men whose goal is to grow both professionally and personally.

Plan to join us for the first chapter meeting of the new ABWA calendar year.  Our chapter is growing and we would love to have you grow along with us.

Come help us build the DiamondsofSouthbay as we continue to reach out into our local communities and share what ABWA can do for women and men of all backgrounds.
