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.
