The Trendsetter Chapter is a Non-Profit 501 (c) 6 local league of our National Association. We currently have approximately 50 members. Our Palm Desert Trendsetter Chapter was founded in 1982 and we are celebrating 40 years of women helping women, here in the desert.
The American Business Women's Association (ABWA) has long been accepted as one of the leading business women's associations in the U.S. and its far-reaching influence has touched the lives and careers of so many. It's incredible to realize that it all began more than 70 years ago, when the term "business woman" was an oddity and an association dedicated to advancing women's careers was simply unheard of.
Today, ABWA spans the nation as the world's most diverse professional organization for women. Tens of thousands of members gather throughout the country, united by a common goal - to support each other in professional development and career advancement.
For more than a half century, the American Business Women's Association has been a significant thread woven tightly in the fabric of American history. Its unparalleled success in supporting the dreams and aspirations of working women across the nation shall continue well into the future, changing women's lives for many years to come.
