Interest Groups are popular with our members!
WHY? . . . because in these smaller groups we connect, network with other women who share our passions and dreams and have fun.
Interest Groups are the lifeblood of our Club. It is by participating in an interest group, that members becomes connected to the club and, especially, to those members who share her interests. Our interest groups cover many diverse interests of our members. Payment of the annual membership fee entitles a member to attend program meetings and to join as many groups as they wish.
A member can join as many groups as her schedule permits. There is no charge to join a group, although some groups have activities for which there is a charge, e.g. Lunch bunch who go out for lunch monthly.
The groups meet at a set location or in members' homes, with the responsibility for "hosting" rotating in the group. Interest groups may meet in the evening, morning or afternoon and may have a weekly or monthly schedule.
