ABSL Chapters

ABSL Chapters are local communities that bring together ABSL member companies from a given region. Chapters are managed by representatives of local ABSL member companies, have autonomy in defining their agenda and governance but can always count on the support of the ABSL staff, Board and ABSL Partners (market intelligence, data and statistics, networking). ABSL coordinates activities of the chapters enabling sharing ideas, exchanging best practices, joining initiatives, as well as creating synergies. 

ABSL Poland currently runs permanent chapters in 8 major Polish cities: Warsaw, Kraków, Wrocław, Tricity, Łódź, Katowice, Poznań and Bydgoszcz.

Periodic meetings or events for companies representing the sector of the business services are organized as “Flying Chapters” in other cities, where business services play an important role in the regional economy.
