Women who are or have been affiliated with the University of Kentucky are eligible for membership, along with friends of the University.
During the summer the UKWC receives the names of new faculty and their families arriving for the start of the new academic year and reaches out to these new members of our community to invite them to join.
In September each year, the UKWC hosts its Welcome Coffee and Lunch. Attendees receive a warm welcome while they enjoy lunch or refreshments. Everyone has a chance to meet the Interest Group Coordinators and learn about the activities planned for the year. We host our first Craft Sale at the Welcome Coffee and Lunch. Many women renew their memberships and bring their friends who are interested in becoming new members. All members can join or renew their memberships, either at the event, online at our website or by mail, before October 1 to be included in the Club Directory. However, membership is open throughout the year.
