Does your country not yet have a BPW Club? Would you still like to become a member of BPW? Then BPW International offers you the category of Individual Affiliate Member.

Individual Affiliate Member

A business or professional woman residing in a country where there is no BPW Club, may apply to this membership category and be accepted by the International Executive Board. 


An Individual Member may receive information, news and official notices and may participate in all events, meetings and regional/international congresses, but shall not have a vote and shall not be eligible for executive election.


She will be encouraged and supported to establish an Affiliate Club in her country/city. Individual Affiliate Membership Fees are paid annually at BPW International.


Affiliate Club

An Affiliate Club is composed of 20 or more women who subscribe to the aims of BPW International, 75% of whom must be directly engaged in business or the professions. 


The Affiliate Club takes the name of the city in which it is located. BPW International Membership Fees are paid annually at rates per member agreed by the International Congress.

National Federation

A National Federation is formed in a country where there are at least 3 BPW Clubs and a minimum of 100 members. There can only be one Affiliate Federation in any country.


The National Federation must undertake to fulfill its annual responsibilities to BPW International and their BPW Region, and accept the requirement for annual payment of BPW International and Regional Dues at a fixed rate per member.
