friday meet and greet

June 7, 5-8pm

Join us the evening before the main event where you can meet and greet the ABWA National Board of Directors, mix and mingle with members of other leagues! It's open-house style!

Appetizers Available

Instead of the big dinner after happy hour, we've extended the time together, and we'll have a variety of appetizers available to go with your favorite beverage!

We are suggesting a small donation from attendees which will be less than ordering your own appetizer! VIPs are on us!
