This committee manages club membership, including efforts to maintain or grow our size. To that end, the membership committee works to attract, welcome, and engage with members! The committee is also responsible for holding new member events, and for helping create our online membership directory every year.
This committee helps plan and produce the club’s ongoing social activities. Typically, we have one social per month—and occasionally, we have socials that include our significant others (called “Plus One” events). Members help brainstorm ideas, work out logistical arrangements, track event registration, set up for events, and so on—all the activities you’d expect when throwing a party!
This committee coordinates local service projects for Southlake Women’s Club and is a huge part of who we are as an organization. Members can take on a larger role (if they want to lead specific projects, such as furnishing apartments for women in need) or a smaller but very useful role (if they can only help periodically). Community Outreach receives all the money raised during club raffles, and is responsible for supporting our charitable organizations. In addition, this committee coordinates and produces our much-loved annual Valentine’s Luncheon at the Senior Activity Center.
This committee is responsible for coordinating our twice-annual club raffles, including sourcing prizes from donors. Members will also sell tickets at luncheons and help hand out prizes. In addition, the committee helps brainstorm and produce business-sponsored events to raise club funds and sell online advertising.
This important committee connects the Southlake Women’s Club to the Southlake Women’s Club Foundation, our funding entity. Monies raised through the School Supply Sale and Art in the Square are disbursed by SWCF to organizations selected by the funding committee. Members will help review grant applications and assist the chair and SWCF board with other related duties. This is a great way for members to get a good view of how we decide which organizations to support and learn how they will use the money we provide.
