Membership in ASCGWA provides a unique opportunity for both our American and International Military Spouses to make friends and learn from each other. Since 1976, our members have enjoyed fun, fellowship, and cultural exchange opportunities with our military friends from around the world. You are eligible to become a member of ASCGWA and participate in all events and activities if you are a spouse of an accredited attaché (Defense, Military, Air Force, Naval) or assistant attaché assigned to embassies in Washington, DC; (or) a spouse of a foreign officer or civilian employee (sponsored by their respective embassy) assigned to duties in the National Capital Region.
The international members are led by Melissa Pederson. Attendance is voluntary and as your schedule permits. We welcome you to join our current membership of 61 ladies from over 37 countries! To become an ASCGWA member, please visit our membership page and follow the instructions. If you have questions about ASCGWA membership, contact the membership chair.
Benefits of Membership
ASCGWA membership dues are $35 per year, and can be renewed. The membership fee includes a membership directory, a subscription to our monthly publication, Backchannels, and an open invitation to participate in a large variety of club-sponsored activities and special programs that include our Zip Code groups, International Activities, the annual Joint Armed Forces of Washington Luncheon (JAFOWL) and tours. Guests are welcome unless otherwise noted. Those who are eligible for membership in ASCGWA may attend only one function as a guest, then must be a member to continue attending.
Members of the Army Spouses’ Club live throughout the metro area in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia, including Joint Base Fort Myer-Henderson Hall, Fort McNair, and Fort Belvoir.
