About IWC

The International Women’s Club of South Limburg in the Netherlands was founded in February 1985 as a non-profit organisation. As of December 2011 there are 180 members from 35 different countries.

The primary purpose of the Club is to bring together women of all nationalities living in the area of South Limburg, promoting friendship, sharing mutual interests and extending support and information to newcomers.

Members are invited to participate in all activities, including country walks, museum visits, playing bridge, patchwork quilting, book reading and discussion, yoga, language classes and mothers and children groups. A newsletter outlining the club activities is published once a month and mailed to all members.

Once a month the club hosts a social evening for all members, often featuring guest speakers. To facilitate contact between members living in the same neighbourhood, the club is divided in to area groups. This also encourages outings on a smaller, local scale.

A newcomers welcome coffee is organised on a regular basis to introduce new and/or potential members to the club.
