Federation of American Women's Clubs

Introducing our new FAWCO Representative

Hello All!

It’s a pleasure to present myself to you as your FAWCO representative for the first time. Many of you know that the Federation of American Women’s Clubs (FAWCO) is our umbrella organization and a UN-registered NGO (non-governmental organization). Is it a big deal? Yes, It’s a big deal. It means that we have a voice that is heard on the international stage.

I look forward to introducing many of you to the “big deal” which is FAWCO. I want to keep you informed of their activities and most of all, get you personally involved! Membership in FAWCO comes with your AWC membership. Go to the FAWCO website at www.fawco.org. Register yourself. Thereafter, surf their website to learn about the many wonderful projects that the organization has taken on and been involved in. It will make you proud.

This month FAWCO’s annual conference has taken place in Mumbai, India. Its theme was “The Butterfly Warrior”. I was in attendance to represent AWC Denmark and look forward to reporting back to you. You can also begin to read a bit about it on FAWCO’s website. You should also consider signing up for FAWCO’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fawco/

Our Regional FAWCO conference (Region 2) will take place April 21-23 in Helsinki. All AWC Denmark members can participate, so mark your calendars and consider attending! Airfares are reasonable at this point and we are looking into a place to stay that can accommodate a group. In addition, our hosts in Helsinki have offered the possibility of B&B with some of their members. They will need advance notice, so contact me if you are interested in attending the Helsinki Regional. You can download The Registration Form and 3-day Program Information from these links:

FAWCO offers AWC members’ children and grandchildren scholarships, as well as opportunities to explore the world with other young people. They do not need to hold USA passports to participate. See more about this on the FAWCO Foundation website.
