The purpose of this group is for Americans, honorary Americans and anyone who just likes Americans, to get together! For those of us far from home, it's really nice to be able to talk to others about all the old familiar stuff. And since we all immediately have in common the decision to move to this beautiful, faraway land, we are all automatically friends! So let's get together to share our experiences, help each other, give and receive advise, and just have some fun!

If you would like to meet up with others, then just suggest an event or join one of them regular events such as the AWC Social Mixers or Thanksgiving or 4th of July celebrations.

This group has previously been sponsored by the American Women's Club. The AWC has been around since 1942, the club aims to promote mutual goodwill, understanding, respect, and cooperation between it's members and the New Zealand community. Our purpose is to make your life a little easier and hopefully, happier. Whether you have just arrived in New Zealand or have spent your whole life here, club members can offer you a wealth of information, along with friendship and a sense of community.

While the American Women's Club is still active within this group, it is now for all of you and many events will be for all members of this meetup group, not just those interested in the AWC. This is your meetup group and we want you to get involved. Please suggest a meetup you would like and contact the organisers if you would like to host something.
