Meet the Council

A Community of Women


The South Carolina Area Council began in January of 2019.  We provide an avenue in which the  American Business Women's Association leagues of South Carolina comes together to provide education, leadership, and networking support to our communities. We are a team of women working diligently to improve our careers and contribute to building a better future for women. 

We welcome like-minded women to join our association and local leagues to expand your network and enhance your career development.
