Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who can join?
A: Seacoast Newcomers Club welcomes all women who wish to expand their social and educational horizons whether they are a newcomer to the area or a newcomer to a different phase in life.
Q: Is attendance required?
A: Attendance is not required at the General Membership events. Special Interest Groups sustain themselves in sync with member interest and attendance. Some fade away after a few years, new ones are started every year, and some have been around for a long time!
Q: Can members start new Special Interest Groups?
A: Absolutely! That is how all SIGs happen. The "club" does not initiate or organize a SIG - all SIGs exist because of members' interest, participation, and enthusiasm.
Q: Do I need to be new to the area?
A: No, Seacoast Newcomers Club is open to any New Hampshire or Maine Seacoast Area women who wish to make new friends and share interests with other area women. There is no limit on the length of membership. This web builder lived here 7 years before she found SNC!
Q: Is there a membership term limit in the SNC?
A: No, there is no limit. We know other Newcomers' groups limit membership terms; but we do not. We have members who have been part of our group for more than 20 years. They are a plus - why would we limit anyone's membership?
Q: Where are you located?
A: Seacoast Newcomers Club members come from the New Hampshire, Southern Maine, and Northern Massachusetts Seacoast Area. We don't have a home base, office, or even a PO box! Our meetings are mostly in member homes; but we may meet in restaurants or function rooms.
Q: When was Seacoast Newcomers Club formed?
A: The Seacoast Newcomers Club, a women’s social group, was founded in 1970 as the Welcome Wagon Newcomers Club. In 1983, the club became the Seacoast Newcomers Club. In 2004, we received our 501(c)(7) designation.
Q: How many members does Seacoast Newcomers Club have?
