Members in good standing are those who have paid their annual fees in May and continue to support the aims and objectives of the organization. Members are encouraged to attend regular monthly meetings, bring guests, share their areas of expertise, engage as mentors, participate and lead committees, stand for office as well as attend national and international meetings and events.
Each club sets its own fees. The average is about $160 per year depending on the location and priority areas. This amount includes fees to the provincial organization and the national and international federations.
A member of any club in Canada can transfer her membership to any other club in Canada at no cost.
As an advocacy group, BPW must address issues at the appropriate level of jurisdiction. The provincial organizations lobby provincial governments and other organizations on matters of provincial concerns. BPW Canada addresses issues that are of national interest.
We are always looking to start new clubs. If you have a group of 10 business and professional women ready to start a club, we want to hear from you. Contact the Vice President for Membership here. If you’re a member, log in as a member to access the guide and PowerPoint on how to set up a club. These resources are available in the Member Menu under Membership.
