     Welcome to the 2016 -2017 BPW/PA year!  It is an honor to be your BPW/PA Young Careerist Chair for another year. The Young Careerist Program is a primary program of BPW/PA and has been an integral part of our BPW membership since 1973. The Young Careerist Program provides our organization with new leadership, contemporary ideas, and modern visions for the future of BPW/PA, through our outstanding younger members.

     The mission of the Young Careerist Program is to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of these young women. Each local and district organization should utilize their younger members to provide valuable public relations, increase recognition of BPW within their communities, and to recruit new members.

     The Young Careerist Program helps us to prepare our future leaders of BPW/PA.  Please encourage the eligible young women in your local and district organizations to participate in this program.  It helps us to continue our journey and assists in the personal and professional growth of our members.
