The Naples Woman’s Club is a membership-based non-profit organization, open to any adult woman who shares the vision of enhancing the lives of others through philanthropic activities and volunteer service. We are aligned with a sister organization, the Naples Junior Woman’s Club, and sponsor the Juniorettes, a group of teen volunteers. We have members from a wide range of states, countries, professions, backgrounds, and age groups.
We currently have a membership cap of 300 members, and we are close to capacity. We have a waiting list and each year are able to welcome some new members each year as existing members’ plans change.
Most members are sponsored by someone they know in the club. For those interested in membership, please contact our Membership Chair at Membership@napleswomansclub.org to indicate your interest. Prospective members will be asked to attend a Membership Tea, held twice a year, and identify the member sponsor if you have one. Prospective members will fill out an application after attending a Tea and the candidates will be put before the Board for a vote as part of the membership process. All new members are required to attend an Orientation Session.
Membership in the Naples Woman’s Club also includes membership in the General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) and GFWC Florida. Members are required to be active on at least two committees or projects, serving on a planning committee or as a volunteer for events sponsored by the club. Members are required to pay annual dues (currently $100).
If you are not a member, nor the guest of a member, but wish to attend a General Meeting, please contact our membership chair at the above email address. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month and include food and beverage so there will be a charge to attend and require a reservation. During January and February, we are sorry that we cannot accommodate guests. We do not meet during May through September.
Please note: the bylaws of the NWC prohibit members from using their club membership to promote their business or services, and members may not be hired by the club for services. The membership directory is available for members only and is considered confidential.
