About IWC membership

Who can join the IWC?

The IWC is open to all expatriate women and men currently residing in Moscow. Membership is also available to Russian passport holders but on limited basis. Russian membership may reflect no more than 5% of the total Membership of the Club as specified in the Club charter.

What are the benefits of joining the IWC?

IWC members have many opportunities to socialise with new friends and become part of a truly international community. We hold monthly general meetings and coffee mornings, and in addition there are a number of special events throughout the year.

Members can join IWC Interest Groups and participate in a wide range of activities.

We support a number of charity projects where members can volunteer their time and give something back to the local community.

Our major fundraising events, the Winter Bazaar and Embassies of the World Ball are highlights of the Moscow expat calendar.

Members receive regular bulletins and newsletters to keep them up-to-date with what’s going on throughout the club.

And finally, our members benefit from our large membership rewards scheme, which entitles them to discounts at a number of stores and restaurants around Moscow.

How do I join?

The IWC season runs from September through the following August, but you may join at any time. The membership fee is discounted 50% for newcomers joining in February or later of any membership year.

Membership Form 2016-17

The 2016/2017 season will start  in September 2016 and we have a lot of new events planned! Our Winter Bazaar and Ball Chairs are already hard at work to ensure that this season’s events will be even more impressive than last season’s, and don’t forget to join us in September for our first Monthly Meet & Greet meeting of 2016/2017 on September 21st  where you can sign up for your favorite Interest Groups.

So get excited for another year of Professional Women’s Evenings, Coffee Mornings with your old and new friends, Monthly Meet & Greets Meetings in beautiful embassies, hotels and galleries, and mark your calendar for the upcoming dates when you can renew your membership. The 2016/2017 membership fee will be 4000 rub.

If you would like to become a member of the IWC, please download the membership form, print it out, complete it, and bring it together with your passport, the membership fee (4000 RUB) and a photo (with your name on the back) to a Coffee Morning or other IWC events. The schedule for these events can be found at our start page. For your convenience, the photo may also be sent via e-mail to iwcmembership@gmail.com.

To renew membership for the 2016/2017 season, simply bring your current IWC badge and lanyard to any of the upcoming Coffee Mornings, Meet & Greets Meetings or Renewal Sessions.

IWC members receive a badge and a lanyard (ribbon) upon joining the IWC. The badge is permanent. The lanyard, however, is changed every year. Please remember to bring your badge and lanyard when attending any IWC event, as this designates you as a current member of the Club as opposed to a guest. If your badge or lanyard is lost, there is a required replacement fee of 400 RUB.


Can I attend IWC events if I’m not a member?

Guests are welcome at individual IWC meetings, but must pay a guest fee of 400 RUR. Non-members can not join IWC Interest Groups.
