The Montrose Women's Business & Professional Club grew from a meeting of interested business and professional women held in the Park Hotel on the 30th September 1948.

During the key note speech given by Mr Duncan Fraser in September of 1948 he briefly mentions the diverse interests and experiences of the members and their ability to contribute something beneficial to the community before going on to talk about the aims of the club.

The Club's aims were to promote a society of sexual equality in which women took an active part in decision making at all levels. Promoting the role of women in education and training as well as their participation in local councils and committees was also important goals.
