Thank you for your interest in membership in the IWI Basel group. Membership is 70 CHF for the year (January to December) and can be paid via online banking or in cash at your first meeting/event.  If you would like to join us, please fill out the form at the link below:

IWI Membership Form 2022

Membership fees are used to cover:
– website costs
– the hiring of a monthly venue for activities
– materials used for activities wherever possible.

Due to the costs involved with craft activities where we need to provide materials, we are currently charging an extra 5 CHF per session for these.

Please note that whilst we will make every effort to make the membership fee cover all costs of events and activities, it may be necessary to also charge individual fees for particular activities, for example, restaurant meals or theatre tickets which we try to get group rates.

The IWI Basel is strictly a non-profit organisation run by unpaid volunteers – membership fees cover costs of meetings and activities.

At the International Women’s Institute, we want our members’ voices to be heard. Every month (except for July and August), we have a members’ meeting where we discuss and vote on issues related to the running of the group, usually along with some drinks and nibbles! It is a great chance for our members to catch up with each other and get involved. (Due to Covid-19 we offer weekly online meetings, but we also organize inperson meetings for those who are comfortable to meet up)

As a member, you will have access to the IWI Facebook members-only private group where we post meeting minutes, monthly newsletters, committee events and photos of our adventures. We have discussions about possible new activities to gauge the interest in the topic before we book anything to keep costs and planning time at a minimum. We advise all members to use the facebook group for updates on events because the postings are private and security is important to us. Thank you for your interest! We look forward to meeting you soon.

If you are an existing member you can use this form to confirm your membership for 2022!
