Check out Alaska Public Radio article about us, entitled "Anchorage Petroleum Wives Club welcomes new era with new name"
The Anchorage Petroleum Women's Association was the subject of a May 9, 2017 Alaska Public Radio article written by Elizabeth Harball. Read the article from the link: https://www.alaskapublic.org/2017/05/09/anchorage-petroleum-wives-club-welcomes-new-era-with-new-name/.
Effective June 1, 2017, the Anchorage Petroleum Wives Club will be known as "Anchorage Petroleum Women's Association." Our associated 501(c)3 organization, the Anchorage Petroleum Wives Foundation, will now be known as the "Anchorage Petroleum Women's Foundation."
At the April 26, 2017 APWC luncheon, the membership unanimously voted to rename the organization to the Anchorage Petroleum Women’s Association. The 2016-2017 Board of Directors will collaborate with the 2017-2018 Board of Directors to facilitate this name change process during this upcoming summer. Please be advised that, starting June 1, communication from this organization will be under the name Anchorage Petroleum Women’s Association.
Although our name has changed, our mission has not. Under our new name, the Anchorage Petroleum Women’s Association will continue our mission of providing Anchorage-area women with opportunities for social contact, community involvement, and personal development.
