Formed in 1978 by three Milwaukee businesswomen, Professional Dimensions has grown from its original goal, of providing a network of support and communication among other business and professional women, to become the largest women’s membership organization in the state of Wisconsin dedicated to the leadership and professional advancement of women. We currently have over 350 women who strive to make Professional Dimensions an organization that supports all dimensions of a woman’s life.


Becoming a Member

Current members may sponsor someone for membership by filling out a brief form and submitting it with the potential member’s resume or bio to the chair of the Recruitment Committee. Candidates accepted by the Recruitment Committee must then be approved by the Board of Directors.


New member receptions are held several times each year, to introduce new members to the Board and to other new members. At these receptions, Professional Dimensions’ history and committees are described and new members are encouraged to get involved. Participation in one of the committees is the best way to meet other members and benefit from the organization.



Membership is by invitation and focuses on "women who inspire” through their personal and professional experience and talents. Potential members must be engaged in professional work, whether or not for compensation, and must demonstrate an interest in professional growth. Community involvement is looked upon favorably.


The Recruitment Committee strives to strengthen the diversity and leadership of the organization and to maintain a broad spectrum of occupations. Target populations include non-traditional or under-represented occupations, executive women in a company or organization, women of color, younger women with leadership promise, and other community leaders.



Professional Dimensions offers its members many opportunities to connect with each other and the community for personal and professional growth:

  • Member meetings, held twice a month featuring speakers and networking activities
  • Board and committee participation
  • More than a dozen special interest groups
  • Involvement in Charitable Fund projects
  • Friendships and professional relationships



  • Payment of annual dues. New members are responsible for a one-time initiation fee when joining the organization.
  • Attendance at membership meetings when scheduling allows (there is no minimum meeting attendance requirement). Members are responsible for the cost of the meal of any meeting they attend.
  • Support of the current Charitable Fund project through monetary and/or volunteer support, within your ability to give time, talent and treasure.
