We are the voice of working women in Minnesota; it’s a role we take very seriously. We’re constantly on the look-out for ways to bring value and growth opportunities to our members and working women.

Our organization offers the rare combination of personal and professional growth.  Members love the networking, the programs and especially the camaraderie they experience at the club meetings.  At state events they join with women from across Minnesota and from every walk of life to be inspired, to be exposed to new ideas and to be recognized for their accomplishments.  We truly are women helping women.

This year’s focus is  




Welcome to Minnesota Business & Professional Women.  I am the President for 2016-17.  After 33 years, I recently retired as a police sergeant from the Willmar Police Department.  I am excited to lead this great organization of women for the coming year.  

Our membership is diverse with administrators, teachers, business owners, secretaries and many other professions.  Our members are women of every age, race, religion, political party and socio-economic background.  But we all have one thing in common .... empowering working women.

We would love to have you join or visit one of our local organizations around the state.  You can click on the "clubs" tab to find out more information about of of these great groups and when they meet.  

Thank you to each and every of of our BPW members for all you do in your communities, your places of employment and for Business and Professional Women.  I am hopeful that I will get to know each member a little better during the coming year as president.

Julie Asmus
2016-17, 2017-18 State President
