BE POSITIVE WOMEN - And Positive Things Will Happen
You have the opportunity to meet powerful women from throughout the state that you would not otherwise meet. Attending the educational seminars can give you tools to work within your life and career. The experience of attending a state conference gives us all a better understanding of BPW and how it works.
Conference is not always serious business. We have fun activities and enjoy the company of our BPW sisters. Check out some of our photos from our 2021 conference and other conferences past.
