Membership Categories

Member of a Local Organization

A Member of Local Organization is affiliated with one of our local organizations.

Student Membership

Student membership is open to individuals enrolled in a college, university, or any other accredited educational institution above the high school level.

Dual Membership

Members may hold dual local organization memberships and/or dual state memberships.



If you don’t have a local organization close to where you live or work, BPW/FL offers a Member-At-Large category so that you can take advantage of the benefits of membership that best suit your needs and circumstances.  A Member-At-Large is not affiliated with a local organization, paying only state dues directly to BPW/FL, with voting rights only at the state level.


Individuals who are a BPW/FL Education Foundation scholarship recipient or a resident of a BPW/FL Education Foundation sponsored scholarship house may join as a Student Member-at-Large.
