What We Do

With a club demographic that spans age groups, life’s phases and crosses cultural boundaries, we strive to offer something for everyone. With a mix of daytime and evening happenings, we hope everyone can find a convenient time to take part in something.

AIWCC is keeping members connected through online meet-ups during this time of social distancing.
We welcome you to join our community!


Our events are club-lead with support from members. They occur seasonally or may be a one-time special event. Longstanding club events include family parties for Halloween and Christmas in addition to our Welcome Back Brunch in September, a Thanksgiving meal, a Christmas Brunch, our Annual General Meeting in June and a July 4th BBQ. Recent additions to our annual events include Trivia Night and the Sustainable Fashion Bash. Both are fundraisers for our Charities. We also participate in and host special interest events like:

    • One Billion Rising
    • Cologne Karneval
    • Book Discussions focused on special topic (i.e. refugees, education, human rights)
    • Benefit Concerts
    • 16 Days Campaign
    • Women’s March


Our activities are member-led with support from the club. They occur weekly, some once or twice a month, and some happen "on demand" i.e. when it is convenient for the Activity Leader and participants. Our weekly coffees, the mommy groups and our book discussion group are among our longest running activities. Current staples are Writing Women, Stitch ‘n’ Bitch, and Southern Swizzle. Examples of activity groups we have had in the past are Kino & Kölsch, Scrapbooking, Painting, Photography and Tennis. Groups change based on member interest and Activity Leader availability. New this fall is our Women's Salon, currently focused on health issues impacting women and girls.

We encourage members to pursue what they love and share that passion!

Lifelong friendships have grown from these gatherings -
many began with a friendly smile and a cup of coffee.

We are grateful for the support from these organizations.
