Previous GFWC Annual International Conventions and Board of Directors Meetings

GFWC's Annual International Convention is the premier event for active clubwomen.

GFWC held its first Annual International Convention in New York City in 1890. Since then, GFWC has held conventions in nearly every state across the U.S. Bringing the convention to various communities across the country gives GFWC Clubwomen from varied geographical areas the opportunity to participate in the organization's national and international efforts. Today, the GFWC Annual International Convention plays an integral part in the organization's efforts to better serve its members.
