Welcome to Topeka, Kansas ABWA Career Chapter!

CherieSagesThank you for your interest in ABWA–Career Chapter. We are so proud to be a part of this prestigious national organization which was established in 1949. In addition, we are equally proud of, and most recognized for, the annual Woman of Distinction & Scholarship luncheon event that we host each year in the spring. This fabulous event recognizes an individual who has excelled in her career and community efforts in Topeka, KS. The money raised at this event goes to scholarships to Women attending Washburn University & Washburn Institute of Technology. I invite you to join us as a guest at our membership monthly luncheon held at the Capitol Plaza Hotel on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 11:45am – 1:00pm. We are always looking for outstanding, career minded women of all industries to join our group!  For additional questions, please feel free to contact me personally or email Membership Chair Eileen Caspers.

Best wishes,
Cherie Sage, ABWA–Career Chapter President
