Who We Are
     The Woman's Club of Beckley is the oldest civic organization in the area.  It was formed in 1909,  was federated with the national General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) in 1914 (website:, and is a member of the West Virginia GFWC Women's Club.  It has continued over the years to remain a strong catalyst for community improvement.
Our Purpose
      The purpose of our club is to develop the Arts, to improve Home Life, to promote Conservation and Education, to support Public and International Affairs within the club, and to foster Community Improvement.
What We Do
      Members work in the six GFWC department areas:  Arts, Conservation, Education, Home Life, International Affairs, and Public Affairs.  Each of these areas is sub-divided to include a host of subjects that could be of interest for club members.  A few of the civic projects the Woman's Club of Beckley has been involved with include the Raleigh County Library, Youth Museum, and YMCA..We also work on special state and national projects.
     Monthly meetings are held in the Woman's Club clubhouse on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m.  A light supper is provided before the program and business meeting.  Programs are related to projects of the club or topics of current interest to women.
     Membership is open to all women who reside in the area and who are invited to join.  Dues are $40 annually.  We welcome new members (see contact information).
