What We Do 

We foster a fun, friendly, and supportive community to experience this wonderful country together.

Day and Evening Monthly Meetings

Daytime AWCA General Meetings are typically held on the first Tuesday of each month from September through June at 10 a.m. in the heart of Amsterdam. The first half hour is socializing. The meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. and includes club announcements and a speaker.

The evening version of our General Meetings is more intimate, but also includes interesting speakers and time to socialize! At Night meetings are typically held the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.

If you would like more information on our General or At Night Meetings, or would like to attend as a guest, please contact membership@awca.nl.


AWCA Newcomers events are held every month. We have coffees, lunches and evening events, giving newcomers the chance to meet each other and other AWCA members.

In addition to helping you meet other club members, you will have an opportunity to discuss information and resources to help you acclimate to life in Amsterdam.

For more information on Newcomers, please contact the Membership at membership@awca.nl.

Member Support

Members can all turn to the Support Committee for assistance, whether they are experiencing sadness due to a death in the family or a divorce, or needing help with meals after the birth of a baby or while a broken leg mends.

For more information on Member Support or to request assistance, contact support@awca.nl or see our Member Support page.

Community Service

As a main pillar of the AWCA, philanthropy is an important element within our organization. Over the years we have supported various projects including the Blijf Groep, an organization and shelter system whose objective is to prevent and stop domestic violence; the Leefkringhuis, a grass roots project in North Amsterdam that provides shelter for youth and assistance in various forms to their parents; and De Kloof, a homeless day shelter.

As part of a global organization, we participate with other FAWCO (Federation of Women's Clubs Overseas) Clubs to spread awareness and raise funds for the FAWCO Target Program. The newly launched FAWCO Target Program focuses on a sustainable investment supporting women's and girls' education.

We welcome our members contributions of time, ideas and energy to the programs and charities our club supports and assistance to the community around us in Amsterdam.

Family Events

As Americans and friends of America, it is essential to uphold our family traditions even as we settle far from home. So throughout the club, family events are held for the most commonly celebrated holidays in the U.S. – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Independence Day. Sometimes the events will surprise you – Pie Night instead of dinner on Thanksgiving (it’s a working day after all), or a full-blown Martha Stewart-style Thanksgiving dinner in a stable (with horse!) – you never know! And Independence Day is rarely celebrated on July 4 itself, but Uncle Sam is always there.


AWCA membership has its benefits! And we love our Benefit Partners! BP's are the wonderful organizations around Amsterdam, Haarlem, Utrecht, and 't Gooi that offer AWCA members discounts on their many goods or services. These deals are for members only!
