Join a committee

With every event we plan, there is a team who: Arranges speakers, makes social media posts, meet with other members to collaborate on things etc. 

With the current five awesome board members we can’t do this alone. That is why we need your help to join a committee. You will get to broaden your network and get more involved.

We always do need committee members so with mailing to us you are really helping us.


These partners are the reason ABC can organise their events.

For the old board members and people close to ABC, we as ABC have set up the Friends of ABC. By being part of the Friends, you get to be part of a yearly growing community and get invited to a yearly networking drink to catch up and remember the good times!
