Our community connects you to unbounded opportunities through a limitless network of professional connections that build unbreakable bonds of compassion, development, and sharing in a safe place to polish skills and develop confidence that profoundly help you in your career path.

Energy Express Network, an ABWA League now in our third year is a thriving new entity to the association supporting small business owners, students and those seeking to connect with a diverse group of professionals by providing a centralized location in Houston to grow our community. Conveniently located at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Downtown, monthly evening events offer a fun and exciting environment of belonging to gain knowledge, develop public speaking skills, and strengthen leadership character by serving on the Executive Board and Committees. Not-to-mention, we offer free parking and easy access to Metro Bus routes for our members and guests commuting to downtown.
