We have three membership options to fit your location and profession.
For those that aren't based near a club, we offer individual membership. Monthly meetings are via online video conference and individual members are connected through our monthly newsletter and national events.
Our ten clubs throughout the North Island provide monthly in-person meetings, guest speakers and other events. Individual members are welcome to attend meetings and events as guests when they are in town.
Companies can offer their staff access to BPW NZ's membership opportunities through a corporate membership. Corporate members are also offered opportunites to speak at national events and mentoring to foster a culture of empowerment for women.
Membership is NZ$94 per year for Individual members and Club Membership includes the Individual Membership fee plus additional minimal contributions to club management expenses.
All members receive our newsletter, invitations to events for networking and development, and opportunities. They can also join our National Taskforces and stand for Executive roles.
Club Members can access in-person meetings, events, projects, and leadership opportunities.
Membership includes membership with BPW International, including a newsletter and access to international events.
Most importantly, membership connects you with like-minded women throughout New Zealand and the world and helps us advocate as a strong voice for the betterment of women and girls.

KEYS TO ACHIEVEMENT
MY BPW: Keys to Achievement, is a personal and professional development programme designed to help members grow in their own skills as well as in their knowledge of their club, of BPW NZ, and of BPW International.
Using a three tier (Bronze, Silver, Gold) system of completing tasks, members develop key BPW, career and business skills. Tasks include 'Promote a local business' (bronze) or undertake a 'Policy Project' (gold). A book is provided with guidance for each task and an experienced club member will assist your progress.
For more info, contact your club executive, or if you're not a member contact VP Membership (email here).
"Completing the keys to achievement as part of my journey with BPWNZ has given me a better understanding of OUR organisation. It also helped ME LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR work for a better future for Women and Girls IN NZ AND GLOBALLY. I would recommend this program to all our members."
