Welcome to ENNC

The Elmhurst Neighbors and Newcomers Club is a social club for Elmhurst-area women who are interested in building friendships, connecting to their community, pursuing special interests, and for those who are simply looking to have some fun.


It’s that time of year – the ENNC Board is now accepting Board nominations for the upcoming term!  The next term will begin June, 2018 and we’d love if you’d consider taking a bigger role in the organization.

This year we are making some changes to the board that will allow flexibility in how much time you are able to volunteer.  If you have a few free hours a month and can attend board meetings once/month, consider joining as a Committee Chair. If you’d rather be in a supporting role to help, rather than lead various activities and events, please consider joining as a sub-committee member.  The number of sub-committee members will not be limited – the more the merrier to support our events!

The open opportunities are listed below, please contact the nominating committee at enncnominations@gmail.com  for volunteer details:

Our club helps women and their families meet new people, connect with others who have similar interests, and generally become more familiar with the Elmhurst community.

With Social Events for ladies and their families, as well as the many and varied Interest Groups, the Elmhurst Neighbors and Newcomers Club really has something for everyone! Our club is made up of all kinds of members with varying levels of participation. It’s up to you!
