Strength in diversity
The greatest strength of the IWF is the diversity of our membership. With this diversity comes a wide range of interests from hiking to reading to just chatting over morning coffee. For years IWF members have gathered outside the formal monthly meeting to share in a variety of activities. It is often during these smaller group events that members get to know each other better and new friendships are created.
The latest announcements for each interest group can be viewed by selecting an interest group from the menu below. Each year, IWF women suggest new ideas for interest groups – recent additions include Kocktailklatsch and Diners Club.
