Welcome to the WCA  

The Woman's Club of Albany is one of the oldest not-for-profit community organizations in the Capital District. We donate to local organizations serving the needs of women and children, volunteer for a wide range of projects and offer opportunities for new social, professional and community connections. Our membership is diverse in age, interest and profession. Our distinctive historic house is available as a rental venue to members and non-members alike.

Upcoming Events

Tuesdays in the Parlor
First Tuesday of every month

Our first Tuesday in the Parlor is fast approaching.  Join us for a social get together with members and guests! Please bring a nip or a nosh to share.

Dining for Women
October 8th
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

This month's featured program is dbPERU which provides resources to deliver an innovative cervical cancer screen-and-treat program in the remote, low-resource setting of the Lower Napo River of the Peruvian Amazon jungle.


This program will save the lives of women by making cervical cancer screening and treatment accessible and sustainable. The goal of this program is to improve the well being of women and girls, and empower and educate community members about reproductive health.


Enjoy a pot luck supper, hear more about this project and contribute to the cause what you would have spent eating out.   For more information contact Rosemary Revoir.
