If you are looking for like-minded people to exchange experiences and ideas, a warm welcome, support, social contacts and a sympathetic ear and to socialize with, the IWA-BS may be just the place for you.

If we've caught your interest and you fulfill our requirements for membership, the next step would be to find out more about everything the IWA-BS has to offer. Our casual, informal monthly meetings are just the occasion to get to know each other better and learn what our association is all about. Depending on your schedule, you can either join us at the monthly Newcomers' Coffee (mornings) or the - also monthly - Stammtisch (evenings).

If you want to become an official member of the IWA-BS, please contact one of our steering committee member to obtain the application form. There will always be one or more steering committee member/s at our Newcomers' Coffee and 'Stammtisch' gatherings.
