Kick-off on Tuesday for women's clubThe American Women's Club is starting off its membership year with its annual Kick-off Morning Coffee. "This is a huge meeting for us," says Tracey Prim of the American Women's Club. The club's membership year begins in September, when summer vacation ends and expatriates return from summer vacations.
The event, on Tuesday at the Hilton Hotel, is open to all, but targets newcomers to Korea. Attendees will be able to browse through booths of organizations, services and media in Korea that are of interest to expatriates.
The cost is 7,000 won ($5.50) at the door. Participants include the American Chamber of Commerce, FOCUS, the Royal Asiatic Society, Seoul International Women's Association and the Boy and Girl Scouts.
The morning coffee is one of the club's monthly get-togethers. There are more than 200 members in the club, including expatriates, embassy staff and military personnel. The not-for-profit organization is part of the Federation of American Women's Clubs Overseas.
With this event, Ms. Prim says she hopes to show newcomers that "there is so much to see in Korea."
