Midlands Chapter
The Midlands Chapter is for women who are interested in
advancing their careers through regular networking and professional
education. We are located in Columbia, South Carolina and our meetings are held at the Richland County Public Library on Assembly Street. Our goal is to help business women from all diverse settings, to continue to grow, learn, and improve their professional and personal development skills so that they may advance to the next level in their careers. We desire for women to enjoy their professions and their lives knowing that they have a support system from American Business Women’s Association local and national members.

”The glass ceiling that once limited a woman’s career path has paved a
new road towards business ownership, where women can utilize their sharp
business acumen while building strong family ties.”
