Do I need to be a U.S. citizen to join?

No, associate membership is available to all women who reside in Qatar, regardless of nationality.

What is the cost of membership?

All current membership costs and fees are outlined on our Membership page.

I’ve just signed up on the website as a subscriber. Why can’t I see member pages?

If you are a new or perspective member of AWAQ, we will need to verify your membership status before allowing full access to our members-only website pages.  Once confirmed, our administrator will send you an email with instructions on how to access these secure pages.

How do I log-in?

Renewing Members: Under Log-In enter the email address registered with AWA last year.

Click Forgot password?, then check your email for assigned password.

All renewing members will be able to log-in until October 15th . After this date, only verified paid members will have full website access.

New Members: Register on Member Registration (from the top blue navigation bar under Log-in). After we verify your membership status, you will receive an email to advise you have full member access.

How do I change my password?

On Log-In page or in Member Profile (from the top blue navigation bar under Log-In), enter a new password under the box where it says Password Change in blue, then SAVE & CONTINUE.

How do I access AWAQ’s Facebook page?

The AWAQ Facebook page is a closed group, and only verified members are given access.  If you are a current member, visit the page and request to join.  Once your membership has been confirmed, our administrator will add you to the page.  If you are already a member, you may also recommend someone be added to the page.  Again, our admin will verify membership before allowing access.

Why is information on members hidden on the website?

Many of our members wish to maintain a low profile and we must respect their confidentiality.  Members who do not want to appear in the online member directory may choose to be excluded by signing in and visiting our Member Profile page.

Can guests come to AWAQ general meetings and events?

Guests are welcome at most AWAQ meetings, subject to non-member fees.  We also encourage you to bring friends to our informal newcomers’ coffee socials and monthly hosted coffee mornings.  Our events programs are reserved exclusively for AWAQ members.  If you have guests from out of town, please contact us to see if there is space available at a particular event.  Some events are also open to AWAQ spouses and family members, and will be advertised as such.

Can I prepay my membership fees rather than pay at every meeting?

Yes, we encourage all members to pre-pay for monthly meetings when applying for membership.  Don’t wait in line each month!  You may choose to pay all meeting fees in advance along with your annual membership fee (QR 300).  The prepaid cost, which includes entrance to all meetings (except December holiday and end-of-year luncheons) is QR 500.

How often does AWAQ meet?

AWAQ general meetings are always held the second Monday of the month (September to May), while hosted coffee mornings meet every third Monday each month.  In addition, you can find members at informal gatherings, every Thursday at Starbucks in Landmark Mall.  Activities groups also meet regularly and maintain different schedules, while events are also planned at various times throughout the month.
