Any dues-paying member of The Woman's Club may participate in as many of the 13 departments as they find interesting. The departments offer a variety of activities such as gardening, book club, art, Mah Jongg, needlework and yoga. Dates and times can be found each month in the Courier as listed. Members are not required to be invited to join the departments, as is necessary in the clubs, and may attend department meetings as often as they wish. A few of the departments such as art or yoga will require a registration process as capacity allows, so members may want to check with the department chair before a visit.
Departments are led by a president, do not have attendance requirements and operate using Standing Rules, whereas the clubs as led by a president and function under their club's Bylaws.
