Lancaster Area Express Network (LAEN) Chapter History
On June 14, 2006, the Lancaster Area Express Network (LAEN) became the first American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) Express Network in Pennsylvania. Thirty-five dedicated Lancaster County professionals and their associates led the charge to make ABWA history.

We are proud of our ABWA history and accomplishments, both nationally and locally, which promote the rich heritage and mission ABWA, founded in 1949.
