Administrative history

The Victoria Business and Professional Women’s Club (VBPWC) was founded in 1921 by Lottie Bowron. The club’s primary concern was the education, employment, and economic status of women. Originally called the Kumtuks, the Club adopted the title of VBPWC when it joined the Canadian Federation of Business and Professional Women’s Clubs as a founding member in 1930. The VBPWC was also an active member of the Business and Professional Women’s Clubs of British Columbia and Yukon and the International Federation of Business and Professional Women.
