UWC women meeting

UWC membership reflects the many education and training opportunities women have today and is not exclusive to university graduates.

We strive to maintain an intergenerational member base where we can benefit from the wisdom of those who have had full, multi-dimensional careers, the fresh perspectives of those just starting to make their way, and others engaged in all stages in between.

 “As a UWC member, I  enjoy working on several committees and projects to contribute to the club’s ongoing evolution. I have made many new friends, and Ralph Connor House is a beautiful environment to get together, whether for a club lunch or happy hour. I have also hosted several private functions at the house, including a wedding shower and a memorial service. The club’s staff and in-house caterer provided excellent service leaving me free to enjoy the time with my guests.
