Local Organizations

Sunset cruise

The Florida Federation of Business and Professional Women consists of 13 chapters called local organizations.  Each local organization has its own officers and board of directors. Membership in a local organization includes membership in the BPW state federation.  If there is not a BPW local organization in your area, you may join as a member-at-large
