California BPW (CFBPW) is a local affiliate of NFBPWC. The BPW clubs within the state of California report directly to the state.

All California members hold a membership to their District, the State Federation, NFBPWC, and BPW International -- all for one membership fee. When a Local Club can't be located in a persons' area, BPW/California has a Member-at-Large option with full membership benefits.

Mission: To promote and support equity for women in all aspects of their lives and to promote personal empowerment and professional development.

Helpful Links:

CFBPW is divided into four Districts (Bay Capital, Northern, Sierra Mar, and Valley Sunset.) Within each District are 2-6 clubs. These clubs have local projects they work on in their communities from scholarships to hosting candidates' forums, to supporting local candidates to recognizing business/professional women in their communities.
