General membership luncheon meetings feature a keynote presentation that underscores one or more of BPW’s three characteristic pillars – personal, professional and political. We strive to maintain a balance of speakers whose topics or life stories are geared towards working women and align with BPW’s legislative platform (support of the Equal Rights Amendment; economic equity, opportunity and self-sufficiency; education; and the environment).
To be considered as a speaker for an upcoming meeting, please contact Jane Byers, 1st Vice-President and Programs Chair.
