Spouse Community Update - Week 4

Tak for sidst!

Thanks to all the wonderful community members who attended our New Year Get-Together event co-hosted with International Community last Wednesday at the Dome of Visions, and who stopped by our stall at the opening of the European Capital of Volunteering Opening at Ridehuset on Sunday. It was great to see such enthusiasm around our activities and an interest in learning more about Spouse Community and volunteering opportunities with us! If you’re a Spouse Community member with an idea for a project or event you’d like to work on, please get in touch on info@spousecommunityaarhus.dk , we’d love to hear from you!

Join the Spouse Community Aarhus Board!

As we move into 2018 we are seeking an energetic and dynamic spouse to grow and contribute to Spouse Community Aarhus by volunteering as a Board Member in the area of Communications.
You will be joining a proactive and passionate Board of members who are committed to growing our network and engaging spouses across the Aarhus community through social and professional networking opportunities, events, activities and charitable initiatives.

Become a member

We’d love you to join us! Spouse Community Aarhus is a community of enthusiastic international spouses and accompanying partners from all over the world that have settled in Aarhus and made this city our home. All spouses can become a member of Spouse Community Aarhus, whether you or your partner are internationals or Danes. We are lucky enough to have members of many ages and nationalities, both men and women, and some working or volunteering in Aarhus.
 
We are a non-profit volunteer-based organisation and our nominal membership fee of 100kr per year (that’s about the price of two coffees!) goes directly back into putting on our events - so the more members we have, the more awesome events!
 
As a member you’ll also receive invitations to all our Spouse Community Aarhus events which are free to members (or in the instance there is an entry fee or ticket needed, we negotiate the best price possible for our members), and access to our members-only Facebook forum which is a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles. Non-members are also welcome to attend our events, however we usually ask for a 50kr fee per event - so with membership only 100kr per year, it’s worth signing up.

Spouse Community is run by spouses, for spouses; so if you have a passion or event idea you’d like to share with the community - we’d love to hear from you! Email us at info@spousecommunity.dk
