Message from the President

6/20 - Dear Sisters, Friends, and Supporters: As we prepare to host our BPW State Conference and share the glory of our home in St Pete with our Sisters and guests from across the state this weekend, I’m laser-focused on our mission of equity for all. If you haven’t yet registered for the superb slate of education programs on Friday, our Business Meetings on Saturday, or our Masquerade Ball/Installation ceremony of our new State Board-including our own Alizza Punzalan-Randall as State President, I encourage you to consider this unique opportunity to shop and learn from the many vendors, to help raise money for Breast Cancer scholarships by bidding on decorated bras, and to network shamelessly!
