ABWA To Meet May 8

The Northern Palm Beach Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association will meet on Wednesday, May 8 at the Embassy Suites Hotel (4350 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens). Networking is from 6 to 6:30 p.m. The cost is $25, and guests are welcome.

The May speaker is Latoria L. Hillard on “Rise and Read in ABWA.” Hillard is a member of the Northern Palm Beach chapter and is the chapter’s current vice president and professional development chair. In 2017, she found a need to develop skills in teaching, recruiting and leading in order to grow her business. A month later, she discovered ABWA. The Northern Palm Beach Chapter wasted no time showing Hillard what it meant to be a “woman of worth.” She caught the vision and was equipped through professional development, education and network support tools within ABWA. Her values were aligned to the mission of ABWA. This gave her a voice and support to further expand her business. She developed leadership skills by taking advantage of the credentials offered through monthly meetings, the Tri-County Council and national events.

The mission of the American Business Women’s Association is to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition.
