HELP WANTED – LEADERSHIP POSITIONS OPEN!

Like many other small clubs, the IWC Stuttgart runs on volunteer power! And in 2021, it’s time to recharge.

Currently we have a several open positions that need to be filled. Check them out – can you help?

✅ Do you have a little one under three and like socializing and organizing? We need a second Mother’s Corner Coordinator to help Rebecca W. coordinate events for the mums.

✅ Do you love event planning and fundraising? We need a Charity Coordinator to plan events, big and small.

✅ Are you friendly, dependable and have a decent computer? We need a Membership Coordinator to process new members using our club software.


All volunteers are invited to attend our in-person Steering Committee meetings that take place in downtown Stuttgart every other month, where we discuss events and make plans for the club.

Our main organizing tool is Facebook, where we have several private groups set up for planning together.

If you have a bit of time to spare to help keep the IWC Stuttgart running smoothly, we need to hear from you right away!! Volunteering with the club is fun, helps fill the time, and gives you valuable experience that can help when looking for employment later.

Let us know below if you are interested in learning more about any of the positions!!

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL DUES FOR 2021

Dear members,

Renewal invoices will be going out in mid-December for next year! Our Vorstand has set membership fees for 2021 at €45 euros with no early payment discount to keep things simple.

Because we don’t anticipate being able to hold many fundraising events in 2021, any money leftover from these membership fees at the end of next year will be included in our annual donation to Frauen helfen Frauen e.V.

Please visit this blog post and use the contact form if you have a new mailing address so that we can find you.

MOVING AWAY IN 2021?

If you aren’t planning to renew your membership for 2021, we ask that you please fill out the contact form at the end of this post before DECEMBER 10TH of this year*. We will then make sure you aren’t sent a renewal invoice in December and annoying reminders in early 2021!

Why do we need to have you cancel your membership in writing?

Because we are a registered organization here in Germany, we are required to follow the rules specified in our by laws when members leave the area or otherwise wish to withdraw their membership in our club.

Those rules are:

1. Members must notify us in writing if they wish to cancel their membership in the club (emails are fine).

2. Members must notify us before the end of 2020 if they wish to cancel their membership for 2021.

3. Members who do not cancel their membership before the end of 2020 and then fail to pay their renewal dues before the end of the first quarter in 2021 will be mailed one reminder invoice and then a letter notifying them that they are being removed from the membership list.

If you know you will be leaving, tell us now! It will save lots of headaches for everyone.

*If you miss the December 10th deadline, please let us know anyways! You might still get an invoice for 2021 in the mail but we can still cancel the reminders.
