Who can join the IWC
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 20% 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.
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 membership rewards, 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 5000 Rubles per year.
The IWC season will start in September and we have a lot of new events planned!

So get excited for another year of International Women’s Evenings, Coffee Mornings with your old and new friends, Monthly Meet & GreetsMeetings in beautiful embassies, hotels and galleries, and mark your calendar for the upcoming dates when you can renew your membership. The 2021/2022 membership fee will be 5000 rub.
If you would like to become a member of the IWC, please fill out the membership form 2021-2022 , and send it with copy scan of your passport, to email@example.com . The membership 2021/2022 fee is of 5000 RUB. You can send your ID photo as well or bring it (with your name on the back) to the Coffee Morning meeting or to some other IWC events.
The schedule for these events can be found at our Events page.
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 most IWC meetings, but must pay a guest fee of 2000 RUR. Some events may only be open to members due to limited space. Non-members cannot join IWC Interest Groups.
