A Message from the UWC President
It is indeed an honor to lead such a prestigious organization as The University Woman' Club. Thanks to the Board and members for trusting me with such a huge responsibility. It humbles me as I look forward to serving this esteemed club.
This organization has a 90-year history of bringing women together from diverse backgrounds with UGA affiliation. If someone joins UWC, they do not need to join any other association or club. It serves as a social as well as a networking group. We get to attend the season's kickoff coffee at the UGA President's house. Furthermore, we get to enjoy our annual spring fashion show and holiday luncheon at the Athens Country Club. Monthly presentations in our general meetings cover some of the most intriguing topics, so we can follow our intellectual pursuits. Besides providing a platform for social interaction with other wonderful women, UWC also provides avenues for our members to pursue various interests and hobbies through various interest groups. Instead of joining five different associations and clubs, just by joining UWC we can chose to be part of a bridge group, an art group, an antique group, a book club, a gourmet cooking club, and so many other options provided by UWC. It is indeed a one-stop club. We also give back to UGA by sponsoring two scholarships to an undergraduate and a graduate student, respectively.
My favorite part of UWC that I enjoy tremendously is the people: the ladies of the association. Our club has beautiful and elegant ladies that bring years of wisdom, experience, and knowledge. Best part is that everybody is always oozing with love and affection. This is what makes our University Woman's Club special. As you enjoy UWC privileges, don't forget to invite your UGA affiliated friends, co-workers, and family to join The University Woman's Club. Let's have fun together.
As I look forward to celebrating 100 years in 2024, I feel compelled to start some initiatives now that will help strengthen and flourish this club, not just through the next decade but centuries to come. Look out for some new programs, revival of some old ones, changes to existing ones, and some new color and schemes to our club. I feel blessed to have such a remarkable UWC Board which adds to the synergy and actions in support of nurturing The University Woman's Club as we get ready to hit a century.
Just keep your seat belts on and get ready to the ride as we move forward. The UWC Board promises you an exciting year.
Sunita Singh, UWC President
