NEWCOMER TO HOLLAND?
The American Women's Club of Amsterdam (AWCA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization providing friendship and support for American women, as well as non-American women with close ties to the United States, who are living in the Netherlands. The AWCA helps in facilitating the integration into the Dutch community.
Founded in 1927, the AWCA now has Members from the Amsterdam, 't Gooi, Haarlem, Amstelveen areas. Newcomers are always welcome to attend! Gatherings of various kinds are held in each of our four regional areas, making it easier for Members to get involved in their local communities. As an AWCA Member, you will receive our monthly magazine, Tulip Talk, and have the opportunity to take part in classes and lectures, community service projects, newcomer activities, cultural events, tours, day and evening social events, and of course, the expected cup of coffee and friendly laughter.
At our monthly General Meetings, featured speakers present topics of political, economic, or cultural relevance. We are a dynamic group of women, always open to fresh ideas. We invite you to join us at a General Meeting and find your place in the AWCA! .
