How often do sections meet? When do they meet? Are spouses or partners welcome? Is there a section fee? You can find sections that meet regularly once a month or on a weekly basis. Some sections set their own schedule for the year.  Most sections meet from September to May or June, though some are year-round. Spouses or partners are welcomed to participate in several of the sections. In general, there is no additional charge for section participation; if there is a small section fee, it is used to defray section expenses.

How do you join a section? Members may join a section at any time. Contact the Interest Sections Chair directly or use the inquiry form under Contact Us. Each year Faculty Women’s Club holds a fall reception, usually at the Michigan League, and section chairs or representatives are available to describe sections and recruit new members.

How are new interest sections formed? The sections are a dynamic, ever-changing facet of the Faculty Women’s Club. New sections can be formed when as few as ten members petition the Faculty Women’s Club Board; old sections disband as interest wanes. Contact the Interest Sections Chair for more information.
