FAWCO Region 2 comprises the German and Austrian clubs, and they are a fun bunch. They’ve invited any interested FAWCO members (this means you) to their regional meeting on 11–13 November in Berlin. Several AWC Denmark members would like to go; if you’d like to join them, contact Mary Stewart Burgher (3050 6356; emessbe@yahoo.com) as soon as possible. FAWCO and Berlin – what fun it will be!

The butterfly symbolizes personal transformation…from her cocoon the butterfly emerges in her unfurling glory. A symbol of grace and tenderness, she brings the awareness and energy of another way of being. The Woman Warrior is the symbol of strength, wisdom and passion. She is autonomous, independent, strong-willed and powerful!

The bold colors of the wings represent the global effort to bring change

Learn • Reach • Shine

are words that speak to the overarching theme of the FAWCO Target Program for 2016–2019: education - empowering women and girls through knowledge and skills. These are our goals for the 2017 Biennial Conference.

Second bulletin on the FAWCO conference in Mumbai March/April 2017

The American Women’s Club of Mumbai (AWCM) will host the first FAWCO Biennial Conference ever to be held in Region 11 from 29 March to 2 April 2017.

Our hosts are planning some wonderful tours – before, during and after the Conference – to introduce delegates to exotic Mumbai and India. On the occasion of The FAWCO Foundation’s 50th anniversary, Foundation Night “funraising” is sure to reach new levels. Along with the fun, there will be much to cover during the four-day conference, including:

  • FAWCO’s Annual General Meeting
  • the announcement of the next Target Project
  • international and local guest speakers
  • workshops and sessions on club, UN, global, US issues and FAUSA
  • the FAWCO Foundation updates and announcement of the 2017 Development Grant and Education Award recipients
  • catching FAWCO fever!

Be sure to plan now to attend FAWCO’s 43rd Biennial Conference in Mumbai, which means both booking a hotel room and registering for the Conference. To find out more, go to the FAWCO website (www.fawco.org) and/or contact Mary Stewart Burgher (3050 6356; emessbe@yahoo.com).
