I have learnt so much by being a member of BPW and have had the opportunity to extend myself as a person in the skills of communication, administration, promotion of BPW, and leadership. I have loved being able to develop  remits for the Conferences with the opportunity to speak to them. To know that by being a member of BPW I can make a difference to women who not only live in New Zealand but oversea is really special.
