Madison Newcomers & New Friends is a women's social group that has been active in the Madison area since the early 1970's. Whether you are new to the area or have been here for years, Madison Newcomers & New Friends is a great place to meet other women in the community and form friendships that can last a lifetime! Newcomers is also a great organization for women who have recently gone though any major life changes, besides just moving into the area. We welcome all women looking for a fun social group.
Please note that this is a women-only group.
How is Newcomers different from other groups on Meetup.com?
We are a long standing organization for over 40 years in the Madison area. We are not a traditional Meetup.com group. We simply use Meetup as a tool to recruit new members, easy communication and a posting of our events. We charge yearly dues of $12 - just a dollar a month for a year of fun events!
Why do we charge dues?
For the equivalent of just $1 a month, your member dues help to cover the cost of running the Meetup site. We also cover all or part of the cost of some events throughout the year like our book club's annual book giveaway and seasonal group picnics and welcoming events. Finally, part of our income goes back into the community though different volunteer events held throughout the year.
Can I try out the club before paying dues?
We allow interested women to join as a Guest for free for one month so that they can try out one or two events and meet some of the members before deciding if this is a group they want to belong to.
What types of events do we have?
We offer a wide variety of events, including Game Night, Team Trivia, Book Club, Dining Group, Movie Nights/Afternoons, Coffee get-togethers and a variety of volunteer opportunities. We are always looking for new ideas of fun events to do.
