Wheatland-Conestoga Chapter History
Beginning as the Conestoga Chapter in May of 1971, the chapter experienced such growth it sponsored the charter of a second chapter, the Wheatland Chapter, in 1977. In November of 1995 the two Chapters reunited and have been enjoying the benefits of a larger, more productive group since.
On September 22, 1949, Hilary A. Bufton Jr., A Kansas City, Mo., businessman, founded the American Business Women's Association to support businesswomen by helping them reach their educational and career goals. ABWA has dedicated more than 50 years to women's education and provided workplace skills and career-development training for more than 545,000 members.
