There are many ways to get involved in CGSWA! Whether you like to bake, organize, volunteer, or socialize, we've got a spot for you. Stay updated on our monthly events at our Facebook page: Sitka CGSWA.
Although we encourage all spouses and active duty women to become paid CGSWA members, it is not a requirement for some events. If you choose to become a member, your annual due is $20 and is charged upon your initial signup.
Being a paid member does have its perks!
Reduced fees at events
Some of our events are exclusive to members only
Business owners who are paid members get free advertising on our webpage and are allowed to post on our FB page on small business Saturdays!
Paid members can vote at meetings, voice ideas or concerns at board meetings, and use their talents by joining our various committees.
Connect with great women and spouses of the Sitka Coast Guard family!
Work with the Hospitality Board Member to reach out to families during transitions and milestones. Send cards, flowers, and/or small gifts for special occasions and major life events. Make sure all Sitka CG families get at least two meals during times of need. Deliver newborn gifts to member families. Create and distribute Welcome Bags to Coast Guard incoming families. Oversee gift selection for board members to be presented at the May Installation meeting.
