Are you new to New York, or planning to make the move soon?  Connecting with fellow Australian women in NYC is a great way to make your transition easier. 


AWNY hosts a diverse range of social events, and educational and professional networking opportunities that are open to both members and non-members.

Corporate and individual membership to the American Australian Association automatically entitles women to join AWNY. Members enjoy discounted rates on AWNY events and access to a wide range of other AAA functions, resources and news.

Our Meet & Greet Program

Please fill out the form below. We will put you in touch with an AWNY member with similar interests, who has experienced the transition of moving to and living in NYC.  She can meet for a coffee, a cocktail, or a walk in the park.  If you like, she can introduce you to like-minded women, or just be a friendly face at upcoming AWNY events. 

Whether you want to discuss career opportunities, the city’s cultural offerings, or raising kids in NYC, we are here to help you navigate New York life in all its depths and diversities.
