Being a member benefits you in many ways: you will make new acquaintances and form friendships, most of the events that are organised are FREE, it gets you out of your home and you may find that something organised, like Mah-Jong or the Book Club, for instance, becomes a hobby.

This photo is of our 2023/24 Board of Directors for the IWCL.  The Board members meet on Zoom each month and here is a photo of the ladies who are here for you and whom support you.  You’ll find the current Board listed with their contact details under the Members Only tab above.

Please note: The original photo, taken by Barbara Roy on the evening of the AGM, has been doctored to include Lisa Chang and Clare Morris, both of whom were unable to attend, due to being out of the country.  Thank you, Barbara, for the original photograph.

Major Events Coming Up

After a lapse of so long, we will be having our Luncheon again, the first one being on Thursday 28th September 2023 at the Bolero Restaurant in Lucerne, this time we want it to be even more special and we will be celebrating with the birthday ladies of the month. The October birthday girls would like to have lunch at an Indian restaurant, so that will be mentioned next. Come and enjoy a lovely meal with us in a celebratory atmosphere and take advantage of the opportunity as we may not be able to do this every month.

On the 19th of October, our cultural event will take place in Lugano. We are spending the last of the summer in the south of Switzerland, let's extend our summer by visiting members of our Lugano Sister Club and getting to know the largest city in the canton of Ticino.


We meet at the Hofgarten every Tuesday from 10:00 am until 11:30 am for a drink and a chat.  

Just pop by to meet friends and new members. 

No Registration required.
