President’s Welcome


On behalf of the 2016-2017 Board of the American Women’s Club in Finland, it is my pleasure welcome all current and new members to a new club year! We are planning an active program of meetings, tours and events that include a mix of topics (politics, business, culture), locations (downtown Helsinki and the suburbs) and times (both day and evening events).

All our activities are geared towards one goal: to provide a friendly and vibrant community for the expat and local women who make up our membership. Our events encourage members to engage in lively conversation and learn more about each other and the world around us. Come to a meeting to listen to a dynamic speaker and talk with interesting members. Attend a tour to discover something new about Finnish culture. Share tips on things to do and news about your life in our monthly newsletter. Join us for a member social or interest group to relax and share tips, stories and laughter with kindred spirits.

Our membership of about 200 women ranges from those who have lived here for decades to those who just arrived over the summer. While a majority of our members are American citizens, we also have many Finnish, British, Irish, German, Swedish, Canadian, and many other nationalities represented in the club. To each and every one, the 2016-2017 Board welcomes you and looks forward to offering you interesting events and friendships.

If you are not yet a member, learn how to join on our membership page. You can also read more about the club and our usual schedule of events.

Welcome all!
