A Message from our President


Our mission is our story.  It all began in 1995 with eleven caring women from the Oceanside area who inspired others, one person at a time, to join them in celebrating a wide range of cultural differences through focusing on the many cultural similarities. Since that time, NCAAWA has recruited people from every part of Oceanside and beyond who regularly inspire myriads of men and women to bring their dreams and aspirations to our meetings so that our organization can capture new visions for the benefit of the community at large. We have learned that although all of us experience life independently, we all aspire many of the same ideals. I’m proud to say that we welcome our friends and new neighbors with warm and caring hearts just like our founding mothers did 20 years ago. Today we are living testimonials of their vision to provide support to women of all ages through education, to bring a greater awareness of good health, and to enhance ourselves through stimulating programs.  This year we will do even more to bring as many ethnic and cultural groups together to unite in our richly diverse lifestyles. Come join us. Everyone is welcome!

Women’s Conference

The 1st NCAAWA Women’s Conference was held April 18, 1996 and grew out of a need to provide mentors for women in ROP and job entry programs. Since 2005, our conferences have successfully maintained our commitment to support multicultural and inter-generational women. The mission of the NCAAWA provides the foundation for conference programming, i.e., seminars and workshops that educate and inspire, address health as well as life and career skills.
