Corporate Advisory Board Membership (CAB) is an exclusive group of ABAOC sponsors representing Fortune 500 companies, government municipalities, and government agencies. The CAB plays a major role in shaping ABAOC organizational membership programs and events by sharing their valuable management skills and experience.
Each year ABAOC schedules quarterly CAB meetings to review past performance, and advise our sponsors of community changes and challenges as we look forward to the upcoming year. CAB’s involvement provides ABAOC with valuable information to plan our upcoming year, incorporating and increasing our corporate sponsors impact and outreach to small businesses. Over the years, CAB has grown from 5 to 12 corporate members to date with an annual membership cost of $ 1,000 as part of our sponsorship package.
