The purpose of the Alliance Book Club is to share books through reviews and discussion. One of its greatest benefits is the development of lifelong friendships and interesting experiences throughout the year.
Annual dues are $10. Members of the group take turns reviewing books, hosting the meetings in their homes, and serving as chairperson on the alphabetical rotation. Senior members are excused from being hostess and giving reviews, but pay dues. Guests are welcome.

CINDERELLA DRESS DAY

The Cinderella Dress Day Committee works all year-long to collect dresses, secure sponsorships, and organize volunteers for the seamless execution of that one special day in the Spring that we call, Cinderella Dress Day.  This event not only provides dresses for underprivileged young ladies, but works to provide a health education component, as well.  More importantly, we hope to give these young ladies a day to remember, and the message that they are special too.

Committee members: Tania Boyd- Nasreen Ahmed, Michelle Collins-Austin,

MEMBERSHIP

Membership is the building block of any organization. The Membership Committee is designed to welcome new physician spouses to the Fort Wayne community. Our goal is to reach out to new members through the I.U. Medical School, the Family Medicine Residency, and the Fort Wayne Medical Society. Our mission is to create a strong membership foundation that allows us to support and encourage each other while having a positive impact on the community.
Our Membership Committee represents a strong cross-section of our general membership. They understand the need for networking among physician-families, reaching to renew former members, and recruiting new members to our organization.

Committee Members: Betty Canavati, Liz Hathaway, Preeti Jain, Maria Krach, Vivian Tran
