Ad Astra is a member of the Kansas City Area Council which meets quarterly extending the reach for our members to network and develop ideas. 

Our meetings are the 4th Wednesday of each month usually at The Celtic Fox, Topeka, KS.  Networking begins at 5:30 PM with dinner and the meeting starting at 6:00 PM.  Your only cost typically is your meal ordered from their entire menu. 

Founded in 2001

Join other professional women from all stages of their career to network and increase your knowledge.  Our meetings are open to visitors who want to learn more about ABWA and Ad Astra.  Each meeting includes a business relevant topic or speaker from area businesses and organizations.
