The presentation will be about 20 minutes and be around 7 PM. Our meetings are from 5:30-8 PM. The topic is on education. To help narrow the scope, Berkshire Business and Professional Women (BBPW) is a group of dynamic, diverse women from various backgrounds. Typically the dinner meetings range in attendance from 25-40 women. I know in May is Teacher Appreciation week. Regarding the presentation I would like the women to leave feeling inspired and informed.
The BBPW scholarship program is open to women in Berkshire County who are going back to school or furthering their education They fill out an application through BBPW and the BBPW scholarship committee decides on the nominees. They are awarded a scholarship in the amount of $500 in June to use towards books, tuition, etc. We give out at least 7 scholarships per year to local women. The raffle money raised at the BBPW meetings also goes into the scholarship fund-the money is used towards scholarships.
