We look forward to welcoming you to membership in the AWCD!  We are a dynamic group of over 190 women in the Dublin area who are committed to maximizing the benefits of our club for the membership.  We provide professional and personal networking opportunities as well as ‘go to’ resources for those just moving to Ireland.  We work to be meaningful contributors to Irish society by fundraising for our Annual Irish Philanthropy and working closely with our counterparts in the US Embassy Dublin and the US/Irish Chamber of Commerce. 

The AWCD offers its members a variety of resources to meet other members and to become more involved with the Irish community.

Once a month, the club sponsors a General Meeting to encourage new and existing members to network and catch up on upcoming events.   We usually feature a speaker/topic of interest as well as conduct general business as a club.   General Meetings are held the second Thursday of most months; Refreshments at 9:30AM and General Meeting at 10:30AM.  Our meetings are at a location in City Centre and in Ballsbridge. Email us for more details!
