Committees

Get Involved in Our Committees!

To create a more intimate fellowship and supportive groups, AWL offers a diverse number of committees to join according to AWL members interests. Please take the time to review our committee general guidelines and description of each group.

AWL is always open to listen to their members and create other committees of interest, simply contact us with your suggestions at: awlkuwait@gmail.com

General Guidelines:

Committees shall adhere to the League’s written guidelines for AWL sponsored functions. The Chairwomen of the Committees shall be appointed by the Committee Members. The Chairwoman of any Committee shall appoint an assistant. In the absence of the Chairwoman, the assistant should attend any necessary Board meetings and be responsible for committee activities.

Each Chairwoman shall be responsible for the maintenance of an updated file on her committee’s activities and for a written report on current work, to be submitted at the last General Board meeting. If the Chairwoman resigns before completion of her term in office, her report is due upon her resignation.

These committees are ONLY for AWL members. An AWL member can sponsor one guest only one time for any committee activities. Every guest is responsible for any expenses incurred in the activities she is participating.
