Chartered in 2000 with over thirty members.  ABWA The Colony has been providing opportunities for members to advance personally and professionally ever since, and has been recognized nationally with the “ABWA Best Practices” award. 

ABWA The Colony focuses on Professional Development of our members, yet continues to create a warm environment for members to share successes and learn from the lack there of.  Support of each other’s personal and working lives is tantamount.
