President's Message

Tracy Gran  | Published on 11/1/2017

Welcome to Sioux Falls Business and Professional Women, which was created in 1919 and was the first national organization in the world of its kind.  Our mission is to enhance the business and leadership potential of all women through networking, professional and personal development. 


Our local membership is comprised of working women in all positions including business owners, corporate executives, elected officials and retirees who share the overall goal to build powerful women, politically, professionally and personally.  If you are a working or retired women in the Sioux Falls region, we invite you to join us!


Membership benefits include networking with mentors, colleagues and friends at our monthly meetings and events throughout the year.  These can assist you in advancing your career and making productive connections.


To make your membership more meaningful, I strongly recommend that you volunteer on a committee within the organization.  By getting involved, you can really maximize your membership by additional networking and by gaining leadership skills by doing these volunteer roles.


I personally have been a member of SF BPW since 2007.  I have built meaningful, lasting friendships through my membership.  I have volunteered on various committees throughout the past 10 years and these experiences have been impactful to my career in addition to the depth of learning I gained from those that have mentored me by example.  It is truly a wonderful organization.  I am always available if you have questions as you learn more about the rich history of this organization.  Please do not hesitate to reach out and I will do my best to connect you within SF BPW.
