We know a woman who can!
The Ayrshire Association of Business Women (AABW) is the leading business, entrepreneurial and professional women's group in Ayrshire.
The AABW offers networking and training opportunities; relevant motivational speakers and a chance to share experiences (and challenges) with other women.
Reciprocal trading between members is also encouraged. As we say "We know a woman who can!"
Who can join?
Women in business, whether working for an organisation or self-employed, and those in the professions are encouraged. We also welcome women who may be thinking about going into business for themselves.
We meet 10 times a year and welcome guests. Meetings are usually held on
the third Tuesday of the month at The Gailes Hotel & Restaurant. A fee
of £20.00 per meeting (£25 for guests) is made, with bookings
made in advance through our administration team or by booking online.
