Business meetings are held so members and the board can make decisions regarding the direction of the organization. The BPW board is comprised of our President, Vice President of Programs, Vice President of Membership, Secretary, Treasurer, and Immediate Past President. There are committee chairs and committee members present at these meetings, along with regular members who want to play a part in the decisions made.

During these meetings, the Secretary records all discussion and actions taken by the board, called the minutes. Meeting minutes are available for review on the Member-only area of our website.

The first topic of each business meeting is reading of and approval of the minutes.

The Secretary will briefly summarize the minutes of the previous meeting. Next is resolution of old business. Anything that was unresolved in the previous meeting will perhaps be resolved at the current meeting or be postponed for a future meeting.
