AWG and FAWCO
 
AWG was founded in 1986 and became a member of FAWCO in 1987.As the club is a member of FAWCO, it means that all individual AWG members are also members of FAWCO.  FAWCO is an invaluable resource for our club and connects us with American and international women’s clubs around the world. FAWCO provides a global reach and vision and has many support tools that can help with club development. 
AWG pays a small annual fee (dependent on club membership numbers) to be a member of FAWCO and also a fee for FAWCO to host our website. The fees are a small price to pay for being part of a global network of inspiring women. read more
