Greetings Members, Prospective Members and Guests!

Welcome to the South East Express Network (SEEN) of the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA).
ABWA was founded in 1949 with the purpose of supporting businesswomen seeking equal business opportunities and providing an avenue to  those women to come together to share experiences, knowledge and successes achieved.  Throughout the years since 1949, ABWA has been providing these same general benefits but has changed and improved the specific topics and tools to meet the needs of today’s businesswomen.
ABWA is, and always has been, a professional organization for women in all stages of their career and in all professions. Members include everyone from administrative assistants to CEOs and small-business owners.
The goals of the South East Express Network this year are:
·        to continue to inspire, share and educate business women in our surrounding area
·        to promote our own members’ businesses  and the products and services they offer
·        to acknowledge our members’ various achievements
·        to market ABWA and SEEN throughout the community, thus acquiring corporate support for the organization
As ABWA’s Executive Director Rene’ Street stated, “ABWA has a great heritage, and it is stronger today because our members have embraced change together and worked to ensure that our organization meets the needs of a dynamic economy.”
I am excited and honored to be the President of SEEN as we embark on our 13th year of enhancing women’s live personally and professionally through the various benefits and opportunities provided by ABWA and the South East Express Network.  We are committed to remaining relevant to our members and guests as we present high quality programs and events that inspire people and stimulate business.
I invite you to browse through our website to see some of the past events and acknowledgements in addition to our upcoming events and programs.
I also invite you to join us at our next meeting of the South East Express Network.  We meet the 2nd Thursday of the month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at Spring Creek Barbeque, 9005 Broadway, Pearland, Texas 77584.
