The AWCA Newcomers Group is here to welcome you to the AWCA! Every month we hold coffees and lunches at informal and interesting locations around town, giving newcomers the chance to meet each other, to meet other AWCA members, and to get to know their new surroundings.
Going to a Newcomers event is not only a great way to meet other members, but it gives you a chance to learn more about the area. Other members are always more than willing to share useful information and resources to help you acclimate to life in Amsterdam. It is also a great forum for asking those questions you didn't know who to ask...in the Newcomers Group (as well as in the whole club), there are no dumb questions!
Finally, newcomers are encouraged to attend a General Meeting or AWC@Night where you can meet many other members at one time. When you attend the General Meeting be sure to look for someone conspicuously wearing an orange sash, which indicates a welcoming volunteer. She can help introduce you to other members and answer any questions you might have.
