BPW/WA President’s Message Spring 2020
Revise, Renew, Refresh”

I write this message during a very difficult time in all of our lives, dealing with the International COVID 19 crisis. Please follow the National Guidelines to self-isolate, and be safe.

I want to thank again, the 100 year celebration committee. It was a great event! It was so wonderful to see the smiles and the memories shared from some of our older members with each other, and to look at, and hear the history of those who came before us. We are truly blessed to be a part of this Organization.

Our Gold 100 year Celebration pins have arrived and we will make sure those are distributed. Thank you Judi Brown and Tacoma trophy for your assistance on this!

We have a full team and are ready to start another year. It is unfortunate, but vital, that we follow the National regulations and cancel BPW/WA’s State Conference May 2-3. We will keep you posted on plans for installation of our new officers and how we will carry out business.

GOD Bless and Stay Safe.

“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
