It is done! The AWC Clubhouse and Thrift Shop have now been closed. Although we have ended a long era of the American Women's Club having a clubhouse for our members (since 1969!), the Board is pleased to have simplified the club structure and resource commitments going forward.
Everything that AWC has to offer—Activities & Lunches, Membership Gatherings, Scholarship Program, Newsletter & Interest Groups (Casual Connections, Mahjong, Movie Club, LNO)—will continue to function as before, just with one different way to pay in person: Cash payments will be accepted on Monday mornings (10-11:30am) at Casual Connections. We meet in The Living Room in the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, BTS Asoke. It is also possible to pay at AWC activities and lunches when a representative will be available to collect payments.
You may continue to use PayPal, domestic bank transfers or credit card payments as well. We try to offer payment options that allow our members flexibility when joining, renewing or paying for activities, lunches and the like. Please review all the payment options on this page of our website.
AWC's new mailing address will be at Mint Worklounge, a coworking office space located in Thonglor, Sukhumvit 55 (see full mailing address below). We will no longer have a telephone number, but all the AWC email addresses will continue. And we have begun the process of updating our address with the district offices.
I would like to thank the entire Board of Directors, the Relocation Committee, the Thrift Shop volunteers, and our office administrator, Khun Benj, for all their help during the closeout process. It was a big task!
Huge thanks also go to member Hui Tamaporn for generously allowing us to store necessary supplies and documents at her shop, Yesterday Once Again.
In closing, I look forward to seeing you at a future AWC activity or gathering before I depart for my next expat adventure in Japan mid-June.
