BPW/WA President’s Message Spring 2022

“Living a Legacy” continues…

The BPW/WA Federation has survived a crisis: a two-year COVID global pandemic. And judging from our increased membership, we will continue to survive and grow one member at a time. We will remain a vital, vibrant, relevant organization well into the future, but only with the continued leadership and support of everyone.

Our 101st Annual Meeting in Leavenworth promises to be an educational and fun event! Our event is May 6thand 7th, but the whole weekend is a festival in Leavenworth which coincides with the Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee. As we conduct the business of the Federation and elect new officers for the 2022-23 term, our Foundation will celebrate its 30th Anniversary! Its online auction, starting on April 14th with some great items to bid on to raise scholarship money, will end at 3 pm on Saturday, May 7th. Our banquet that evening includes entertainment, awards, and the installation of the new officers, along with an Evergreen (Past State President) Initiation. There will be lots to see and do all weekend, so please come celebrate with us!

I would like to say in closing that it has been my honor and privilege to serve as your President for these past two years. Again, Cheers to 100+ Years!

Best Personal Wishes

Peggy Harris

“I joined BPW after attending a few meetings.”

“I was new to the community and new to my job so this was a way to meet new people. I immediately enjoyed networking with the ladies and was very intrigued by how they were balancing families, work and volunteering in the community. I wanted to be just like them as I grew older and advanced in my career!”

“BPW offered so many workshops on leadership skills, professional growth, and personal development that I took advantage of them to support the mission of empowering working women to achieve their full potential and build successful workplaces.”

– BPW member Trini Mayo

“I am glad I joined BPW”

“I joined BPW so I could connect with other women who owned their own business. I have gotten a lot of great information on how to enhance and grow my business while having fun with a group of dedicated, powerful, and diverse women.”

– BPW Member Connie Richter

“I originally came to meetings to just get out of the house…”

“…and listen to speakers that gave me a different perspective and to broaden my horizons locally. I soon found out that BPW is more than just a once a month meeting with good food and entertainment. It is about people helping each other professionally in their business or career and personally with so many diverse members as a knowledge base. BPW also helped to enlighten me politically. I am proud to say I worked hard to support and pass the Family Leave Act and Equal Pay for Equal Worth. BPW has given me the leadership training and self esteem to become a Sr. Manager within a 3, 000 employee company.”

– BPW Member Sylvia Valine
