Our Organization

The local Zonta Club of Berkshire County is part of District 1 (New England), Area II (western Massachusetts), Charter # 1493 and founded in October 1994.  We pay $150 annual dues locally, to the district and to Zonta International.  We also commit to support all service projects and fundraising events with both time and money.  All club members give generously of their time throughout the year to advancing the status of women.

Our Zonta club is managed by a volunteer board of directors, and many, many volunteer committees staffed by our dedicated members. Our meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month at Mazzeo’s Ristorante 1015 South Street, Pittsfield,MA. (Virtually due to COVID)
