There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about The University Club, a Women's Social Club in Iowa City. We've been around for over 100 years! We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to connect with us.
Dear University Club Members,
As I write this last Clarion article, I realize how much this organization and your friendships mean to me. I have been very honored to serve as the 2023-2024 President.
I hope you are enjoying the many interest groups we have to offer. I have tried to attend several of the new groups and have found the interaction between members so rewarding. We are learning from each other and sharing our many talents. For that I say thank you to all the Interest Group chairpersons.
The Newcomers’ Division as well as Connections Interest Group and our Club Luncheons continue to provide very significant programs. A very special thank you to Linda Spangle & Sue Dane, Connections; Jan Frerichs & Nancy Dole, Newcomers; and Pat Skay & Pam Buethe, Luncheons for the persistent work they do as many of these programs are planned a year in advance.
Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, March 12, 2024. This is our annual meeting to elect the 2024-2025 officers. We will also be voting to approve the bylaw changes. Your support is greatly needed and appreciated. I would like to thank the Bylaws Committee chaired by Audrey Beatty and the Nominating Committee chaired by Kate Varcoe.
Our incoming President, Jan Tracy, will be seeking additional women to serve on the board of directors. Please reach out to her if you are interested in serving.
Our annual University Club Style Show will be held on Monday, May 6, 2024 at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel. This year’s style show theme will be “Denim and Diamonds.” Dust off your cowboy boots and hats, put on your favorite pair of jeans, add lots of bling and join us for another fun afternoon. Don’t be surprised if you see John Wayne at University Club events, reminding you to make reservations for you, your family and your friends.
Someone who is impressed with University Club asked me why we don’t form a chapter in Des Moines. That question certainly tells me why UC is such an incredible organization.
As I close, I again want to thank everyone for your support this year.
2023-24 University Club President
Marilee Fowler, President
