The Sanibel Captiva chapter of the American Business Women’s Association welcomed seven new members at an installation ceremony in February.

“It’s a pleasure to add these talented women to the group,” Membership Chair Lisa Newmeyer-Cochrane said. “Although we have had to suspend meetings temporarily, we plan to pick up where we left off as soon as conditions permit.”

“Our ABWA chapter strives to offer the best professional development opportunities and networking for women working on the islands,” President Gloria Garrett said. “If you work, would like to work, or used to work, you will find a supportive environment and a lively conversation with island leaders at ABWA.”

“In normal times, the chapter presents a Women in Leadership Speaker Series at lunch on fourth Tuesdays at Sundial Resort & Spa. We welcome everyone, whether or not they are a member,” she added. “We’ll be announcing online meetings starting in April to make sure we stay connected until ABWA is able to resume at Sundial.”
