Frequently Asked Questions

How big of a time commitment is Zonta?

As a hands-on service organization, membership in Zonta means time commitment. We meet the third Wednesday of the month at 12:00 noon, plus one social event each month.  At present, until the Coronavirus crisis subsides our business meetings are being held via ZOOM.  We anticipate resuming lunch meeting at NMC Hagerty Center but for now we must settle for On-Line meetings.  Members are also asked to serve on at least two committees. Zonta members look forward to these commitments and perhaps one of the finest benefits of membership is the lifelong friendship formed with other members from all walks of life. Check out our new member welcome letter for more information about the responsibilities of membership.

How can I learn more about the Club?

The best way to get to know us better and inquire about membership is to join us at one of our monthly business meetings. Check our Facebook page, Zonta Club of Traverse City or send an email to our membership chair at zontaclubtraversecity@gmail.com

Is there a way I can connect with Zonta without committing time?

If you are unable to make the commitment of membership but want to be connected to Zonta Club of Traverse City and support the mission of Zonta, consider becoming a Philanthropic Friend. With an annual fee that goes to support the club, you will be welcome at lunches and events and will receive club communications. For more information, contact us.
