Executive & Professional Women's Association (EPWA) was founded in 1982 by a group of enterprising business executive women in Southwest Michigan. It was a groundbreaking event at a time when women were hitting the glass ceiling and feeling the widespread frustrations in the workplace.
The general consensus at the first meeting was that Southwestern Michigan needed a networking organization where working women could meet, network, exchange ideas and develop themselves, both personally and professionally.
From that time forward, EPWA has been a local, non-profit organization that runs totally by the commitment, input, and energy of the members. Membership is open to women who own their own businesses, have budgetary or human resource responsibilities in companies and or schools, and women who have retired from like positions.
Throughout the long history there has been a constant theme "Women Supporting Women". EWPA is a varied, knowledgeable resource that is strengthened by 45-plus active members who openly give help and counsel to other members in addition to friendship.
The groups goals have stood the test of time and can be measured in the success of each member and the steady number of women who remain members throughout their careers:
* Focus on the development and support of members careers by networking and participation.
* Encourage an exciting and inclusive atmosphere that values, supports and provides resources to the diversified experiences of our members.
* Outreach to the community to increase membership.
Meetings are held at different locations each month; check the Executive and Professional Women's Association (EPWA) website for this months location and directions: www.epwami.com
