Connections – AALC and New Zealand

‘Challenges for women – The way forward’

In Melbourne in 1971, the Lyceum Clubs of Australia began to discuss the possibility of a national federation. Until that time, the clubs had been autonomous, separately affiliated with the International Association of Lyceum Clubs (IALC). In 1973, the year after our Golden Jubilee, the five Australian clubs – in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney – agreed to form a united front. The International Lyceum website, which states that the clubs are ‘for Women interested in arts, sciences, social concerns and the pursuit of lifelong learning’, explains the history of the Australian Association.

Congress: The Lyceum Clubs of New Zealand and especially the club in Tauranga are looking forward to hosting the Congress in April 2025 and welcoming Lyceum members.
