Ayrshire Business Women

Ayrshire Business Women

Ayrshire Business Women (formerly AABW) was founded in 1994 and is organised by a committee of volunteers.

“The primary goal for the new 2021 ABW Committee is to increase the networking opportunities available to local Business Women, - whilst also raising the profile of the group and promoting the Member Businesses – both internally and externally throughout Ayrshire.”

The new Committee have been re-invigorating the Association in 2021, and are focussed on delivering affordable, value-for-money benefits to Members, having already commenced a PR Campaign to attract new women to join the Association this year.

Group Activities

We offer a fantastic syllabus of networking events throughout the year.

Guests are more than welcome to come along and experience one of our in-person events once we are back up and running again (Post-COVID), and restrictions are reduced. You will be met by a member of our Welcome Committee upon arrival who would be happy to introduce you to some of our current Members...

This year we are hosting most of our events on Zoom for the time being which include Virtual Speeches by the Members themselves, and a Virtual Members Meeting on the first Friday morning of every month.

As professional women, we actively endorse the development of women in business and exchange ideas, opinions, experiences and opportunities between our members.
