Membership Fees:

Your membership fee enables IWA to offer a wide range of activities to our members and meet our legal obligations as an officially registered association.

Membership fees solely support the association; all charitable donations are held separately.

Our Council members are all volunteers. We give our time to help all of us make the most of our lives in Bucharest, and we welcome your suggestions and helping hands.

Annual Fees must be renewed each year from the date your membership started.

Note:

To preserve the international character of IWA, no single nationality shall exceed 25% of the total membership. If, due to fluctuating membership, the proportion of one nationality exceeds 25%, additional applications from that nationality shall be put on a waiting list.

IWA values active participation, however due to our ever increasing waiting list, inactive members may be removed after 6 months.

IWA Members should not use the IWA name or IWA contacts for their own benefit or for business purposes.

What our members have to say:

IWA is an association where one could meet pleasant ladies from all ages from all over the globe. Attend interesting events, happenings and get to know a lot about this interesting, mystical, historical and welcoming country-Romania!
– Lydia Slavcheva-Vodenska, Bulgaria

I moved from Greece in September 2014. My first meeting with IWA was at the Christmas Bazaar of the same year where I helped at the Greek table. Since then, I have been a member of IWA. I am a member of the charity committee and I am a part of a wonderful team of ladies from all countries! Through IWA I have explored Romania, I have learned its traditions, its culture, and its life! I invite all the expat ladies to join our team!

Believe me, you won’t regret it!!
– Sandy Sivri, Greece

We arrived in Bucharest in 2016. At my first newcomers coffee I met a lot of nice, funny, active, open women from all over the world. Needless to say that I joined IWA immediately.

I’ve been on a lot of great trips, visits to museums and places you’d not usually have access to, went on amazing tours, visited galleries, enjoyed breakfasts, lunches and dinners, coffee mornings and beautiful events. I met so many interesting people, made a lot of new friends and heard the most amazing stories. IWA is truly inspiring.

Working as a professional freelance photographer, I’ve also had the great pleasure of teaching photography to the lovely IWA ladies with a camera.
– Monica Bommer-Neuner, Austria

I joined IWA in 2018 for the Charity. I loved the compassion, empathy and sympathy shown by those on the committee, who were helping local Romanians less fortunate than ourselves.

I quickly found there was a whole other world to IWA as well. The amazing trips and visits that showed me the culture and traditions of my host country. The unique collaborations and the new friendships that have lasted for many years. IWA is a very special organisation worth joining.
You’ll love it, I know I do!
