    Tuesdays in the Parlor and Tuesdays on the Porch - Check the calendar for dates -  featuring themes, music, fun prizes, and often a charity to donate to. It's a chance to leave club business behind, spend time in a relaxed atmosphere, and get to know each other better.

    Enhance your leadership and people skills by helping plan events and projects, by serving on or chairing a committee, or by becoming a board member or officer.

        A new member TESTIMONIAL -

        "When was the last time you did something that truly filled your heart and replenished your soul?

        Last night at the Woman’s Club of Albany, we created cards to brighten the days of sick children. The cards will be sent to the​ Albany Ronald McDonald House and a national organization called CARDZ for KIDZ. It was such a wonderful way to be creative, connect with other women and hopefully spark joy for the children.

        This community of women has been so warm and welcoming to me. I am grateful to be a member and to be able to participate in events like this that fill my heart.  If any of my Capital Region friends would be interested in coming to our next event, reach out! I’d love to introduce your to this amazing community!"
