Open Door


Extending a Hand in Friendship with Sister Organisations 

As a member of Open Door, our members have the opportunity to enjoy personal interaction with an international women’s group at any destination where a sister club exists.  There are now 61 international women’s associations in 31 countries which are also members of Open Door, sharing a similar goal — that of ‘opening their doors to each other.’                                                                                                                                                                              
Open Door offers an opportunity for our members, moving to, or visiting another area to have contact with a similar club.  A visiting member is allowed to have guest status at a monthly meeting to meet with expatriate and like-minded women — to enjoy their perspectives and tips.  It gives priority of membership to our members who wish to join a club where there is an existing waiting list.  



As a result of Open Door, since 2014 AIWM has had the opportunity to experience small group exchanges with Le WIC de Paris and the Berlin International Women’s Club (BIWC).

This year BIWC is coming to Malta at our invitation 9 – 13th October and dates are confirmed for our visit to Zagreb 15 – 19th September at the invitation of IWCZ to share in their 25th anniversary celebrations.

Julia McDaid, our current International Liaison – Open Door and Lindsay Mann, our current President, have ‘opened doors’ for our members who were travelling or moving to a different locale where a sister club exists.

Feel free to contact Julia for more information about Open Door, as well as, our past and future exchanges.
