The idea for a women’s professional organization was first discussed in the mid-1970s by two pioneers who shared a mutual desire for an organization that would provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, mutual support and stimulation for career women.

As they refined this concept, they discovered the need was widely shared among their friends and associates. With much encouragement, cooperation and through sheer tenacity, the Women’s Professional Forum was launched in 1977.

A private, “invitation only” membership organization, the Women’s Professional Forum has 173 members. Its key goals are:

  • To provide support to professional women
  • To exchange information and ideas and share experiences with one another
  • To encourage women to attain high career goals
  • To enhance careers through a network of professional contacts

Monthly luncheon meetings are held the second Wednesday of the month at The Starmount Country Club. Members are required to attend at least 50% of the meetings each year. Guests are generally welcome, with the exception of our annual business meeting in December.

In addition to luncheon meetings, members may choose to participate in a variety of small group activities, based on their individual interests. These small groups encourage members to get to know one, have fun and build long-lasting friendships. Special Interest Groups change from year to year, depending on the interests of members.
