Where New Faces Become Old Friends

Are you new to Wisconsin?  New to Madison?  Newly retired?  We are a social organization helping newcomers become familiar with the many things our community has to offer and to promote friendships through a variety of social activities.  Our members are women of many backgrounds and work experiences who come together for fellowship, friendship and laughter.  



Please see the Our Story page for additional information.

Who We Are

Interest Groups

Who Can Join

Along with monthly luncheons September through May, we have a variety of interest groups, including hiking, biking, card games, book clubs and Mah Jongg, to list just a few.  See our Interest Groups page for a complete listing.


If you would like an application, please send our Membership Chair an email by clicking on the blue box below.




Anyone who has moved to Madison or the surrounding area within the past two years is eligible to join. We also have three amnesty months throughout the year where people can join even if they are not new to the community.  These months are September, January and May.


Prospective members are welcome to attend two functions with no obligation to join.  Once you become a member of Who's New, you can remain in the organization as long as you like.

Would you like to find out more about us?  Attend a New Member Coffee!

Who's New in Madison hosts two New Member Coffees a year.  All new and prospective members are invited to attend.  This is a great way to learn about Who's New in a small, informal group setting.  Our next New Member Coffee will be held on October 30, 2014.  Please click here to contact our Membership Chair for more information.
