The Women’s Professional Forum began in 1977 by a small group of professional women who were looking for a sense of friendship, community, and support from like-minded women. WPF members are women who serve their community in leadership roles and who enjoy sharing their talents and experiences. WPF upholds a standard of excellence, promotes leadership, recognizes members’ achievements and offers opportunities to help young women through philanthropy and other activities. Our group has flourished thanks to strong, talented and determined women. We now have around 175 members representing around 30 different occupational categories. We now offer grants and scholarships to young women as they begin their professional lives. Membership is by invitation.
