Following a successful membership recruiting drive in August and September, our organization now has 130 members. Our current by-laws stipulate that AWAQ maintains a ratio of 60% Full Members (US Citizens and /or spouses) and 40% Associate Members (all other nationalities), so while we enjoy having such a diverse group of women, we regret that we temporarily cannot accept Associate Members until further notice.
This moratorium is not expected to last long, and we will continue to accept applications (no dues) for Associate membership which will be added to our waitlist. It is anticipated that more Full Members will join in the next few weeks as the expat community returns to Doha from summer travels and sabbaticals. As Full members join, we will process waitlisted applications on an individual basis and applicants will be contacted via email when their application is ready to be finalized and dues paid.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. If you would like more information please contact AWAQ Membership.
