This award emphasizes the accomplishments of the women being honored and to showcase their accomplishments. The Woman of Excellence is recognized by the Federation of Houston Professional Women at an annual banquet each year.

TOP TEN NOMINATIONS:
Each year, ten ABWA members are recognized for their outstanding professional achievement. From these ten, one is chosen as the American Business Woman of ABWA. You must be an Express Network or Chapter member in good standing for at least three years as of May 15 of the nomination year. Candidates are judged on ABWA Historical Profile, Formal Education (accredited or continuing education), Career Accomplishments, and Community Involvement.
Through this program, members can serve as role models for the entire membership, as well as achieve recognition for their accomplishments as businesswomen.
