From 1917, our club has been dedicated to helping women.
“The Niagara Falls Business & Professional Women’s Club” was founded July 17, 1917.
A group of business women gathered to form the Niagara Falls Council of Women and met regularly at the local YWCA. The club is part of the National Foundation which covers all fifty states (the US Federation). The local organization was comprised of members from all categories of business & the professions, such as Accounting, Banking, Education, Civil Service, Law, Medicine, Industry, Real Estate, Insurance, News Media, Sales, Food Services, Office Management, Music, Nursing, Library Services, Arts and Self-Employed in numerous fields of business.
Each year, the club awards a scholarship to an eligible student who plans to further her education.
Young Business and Professional Women (Young BPW) is BPW’s way of honouring successful young career women while introducing them to the ideals & standards of the National Foundation. The BPW members share ideas, experience & expertise through social interaction & planned programmes. The women personify a high level of achievement in their individual careers and dedication to community involvement.
BPW Niagara Falls club has received many awards for originating seminars on Career Counseling, Self-improvement, Education, High Achievement in Membership and Programmes.
The group is international in scope, having the largest number of members all over the world. The local group was originally included in District VIII, which covers Western New York with 22 clubs. The meetings are currently held monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month with dinner at Mick and Angelo’s starting at 5:30 p.m. ET .… a helping hand is extended to all working women everywhere.
