We offer two different types of memberships:
Local Organization Membership (MOL) – Local members come together for regular meetings, special programs, community functions, networking events, and other gatherings designed to help women share contacts, career strategies and to work on women's equity issues.
If you would like to join a BPW Local, we currently have chapters in Atlantic, Cedar Falls, Mount Pleasant, Spencer and Waterloo. Each local organization has their own unique dues structure.
Learn more by contacting the local chapter officer listed below.
