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.
