You don't have to be an American to join the AIWC! We hail from over 35 nationalities and welcome women of all ages. We are an English speaking, volunteer run club of short term expats, long term residents, homemakers and professionals. Many members have families and many live here child free. Approximately 55 percent of us are Americans and 25 percent are German.
We all want our time in this beautiful Frankfurt Rhein-Main region to be as rewarding as possible. We want women new to the area to get settled, make friends, and feel at home. For long term residents to have a lively network of friends.
Join our vibrant group and start making friendships for life. Get involved and participate in the many activities, events, and connections we offer. Share your passion and start up or host activities important to you. Express your creativity. Get involved with running the club, we're all volunteers and many hands make light work!
There's so many ways to make the most of your time with us. The more you get involved, the more rewarding your membership will be!
