Mission Statement

The Valley Women’s Assn. is dedicated to bringing together women from all walks of life so that they may share and support each others goals and interests, exchange ideas, and encourage both learning from their peers and set a good example for others. We provide a platform to members for business networking and informative discussions on promoting a positive self image, health, safety, well-being and successful business practices.

Purpose

The purpose of Valley Women’s Assn. is to bring together women of all walks of life for personal and professional growth, to initiate contact between women, to provide a comfortable environment for sharing common career and social concerns, and to offer self-development opportunities.

Women have come to our Network to meet other women, to make business contacts and to make friends. The Valley Women’s Assn. is a non-partisan, non-religious, non-affiliated group and does not have any particular single focus interest. It does not lobby for any cause or idea.

History

Valley Women’s Assn. began in 1980 and is modelled loosely after other national network groups and was designed to meet the special needs of women in the Fraser Valley. Associate Chapters began being formed in 1992.

The Surrey Chapter was formed in 1997 and the Delta chapter in 2001.  In 2007, the two chapters combined to form what is now the Surrey Delta Chapter.

The Valley Women’s Assn. is a regsitered society as of 2017.

Surrey Delta Chapter meetings are held monthly from September to June on the 4th Friday of the month – except in December when we often meet the second wednesday of the month.
