Spouse Community turns 1!

Spouse Community Aarhus is turning one and as we reflect on the last one year, we are very grateful for the support of our invaluable members who have supported us throughout this journey and inspired us to create various initiatives to develop our unique community in Aarhus.

We are planning for a night of cocktails and canapes exclusive to our member only on May 26 to celebrate the fantastic first year gone by and toast to an exciting year ahead! First cocktail is on us and as usual we are having special discounts for drinks and small eats throughout the event at a brand-new hip bar in Aarhus C! It is not too late to become our member, signup by May 18 and gain a personal invite to the anniversary event and access to a plethora of fun events, workshops and activities for the next one year!

Join the Spouse Community Aarhus Board!

We are seeking an energetic and dynamic spouse to grow and contribute to Spouse Community Aarhus by volunteering as a Board Member in 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.  
We’re looking for a volunteer who is positive, enthusiastic and organised, with a desire to drive projects that add value to our community and members. Ideally, you’re a social butterfly who is comfortable speaking to both individuals and in-front of groups, and you’re also willing to lend a hand and support your teammates in their project areas when needed.

In our Communications role, there’s an emphasis on social media and creating written content to promote our events, so if you’re a great writer and a whiz at Facebook and Instagram, that’s a huge plus!

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, a place to connect with members, ask questions and seek advice, and share events and articles.
