We build powerful women professionally, personally, and politically

Striving to achieve equity for all women in the workplace through advocacy, information, and education

Luncheon Meetings

Twice each month, on the first and third Thursdays, you can join us at 400 Beach Seafood and Tap House for our General Membership Meetings. Enjoy a wide variety of interesting speakers and meet BPW members while enjoying a delicious lunch.

Member Socials

Almost every month, our membership committee will organize an opportunity for members and guests to get together socially. Events are held at different venues throughout the area. Join us!

Message from the President

During the 2014-15 year, please join me in ensuring BPW’s relevance to our members’ personal lives, their professional development and their political awareness. In a time of competing interests, when organizations may seem interchangeable because of their similar missions and audiences, what can we do to set BPW apart?
Be relevant.
