BENEFITS:

BPW International thanks our Friends and Fellows at BPW International Congress each triennium by inviting them to attend Friends and Fellows Dinners. Today this dinner is called “Livia Ricci’s Friends and Fellows Dinners” to honor our Past International President Livia Ricci, who was dedicated to promote BPW International Friends and Fellows program.

This dinner is often held at very special place. For example, at the XXIX BPW International Congress, this dinner was held at the Golden Hall, Manial Palace, Cairo in October 2017. In October 2008, it was held at Freda Kahlo Museum.

Beside the dinner, each BPW Friends and Fellows receives special pin and receive newsletter from BPW International. Prior to digital age, the newsletters were mail to them to keep them up-to-date on activities. Today, it turns into BPW International E-News, which are distributed via email. However, Friends and Fellows can also get up-to-the minute BPW News via social media like facebook.
