Membership application process
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive an application form and apply to become a member. The application form will be submitted to the Board for acceptance. After a positive decision by the Board, a yearly membership fee invoice will be sent by email.
Only members having paid their fees can benefit from members' prices for participation at events. If a new member joins after the start of a calendar year, the first year fee will be pro-rated accordingly.
A transfer is possible between BPW clubs through resignation from the original club giving one month’s notice and application to the new club. Specific financial implications are dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If you are already a member of one BPW local club, you may join a second club at a reduced rate.
