GENERAL MEETINGS

If you are new to Peru, General Meetings are a great way to have fun, network, and become immersed in our group.  


Every month, from April through November, we feature a GUEST SPEAKER and a SHOWCASE ARTIST OF THE MONTH.  We update members, mingle and end the session with a delicious tea.  


General Meetings are held on the first Monday of the month beginning April, from 3 to 5 pm, in 'Chase Hall' at the Union Church of Lima in Miraflores, Angamos Oeste 1155 (one block from Avenida Santa Cruz and 4 blocks from the Ovalo Guitierrez - entrance on Calle Retiro 160, across from the Amano Museum).  Please see map below.


Visitors are welcome.  

Please email us in advance at awlcinperu@gmail.com if you would like to come. Guests pay a 35 soles tea fee at the door.  


If you would like to suggest an interesting speaker, please email us at awlcinperu@gmail.com.
