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 (cancelled for 2020), 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.
