Local Organizations

The Florida Federation of Business and Professional Women consists of 15 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.
