2017/2018 Diamonds of Southbay Board

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 our chapter meetings each month..  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.

For more information, please contact chapter treasurer/advisor Dee Kirtley at cita@earthlink.net.

"Time" for our chapter members to take note! 

Just a reminder as our chapter continues to grow, our fall membership recruitment has been extended through December 20.  Bring a friend, neighbor, or family member to join us at our monthly meetings.  Let's continue to take flight in ABWA.

We are asking each chapter member and guest to bring a toy to our December meeting.  We will be delivering the toys to the Children's Life Department at Miller's Children's Hospital on December.

Our chapter fundraiser, Pot of Gold is in full swing.  Please bring your sold tickets to the December meeting.  Funds will support our education fund.
