GENERAL MEETING
Wednesday 31 January 2018
09:30-11:45
VIC F-1075

Reports will be delivered by members of Borad 2017. We will install the UNWG Board 2018, who were elected at the General Meeting on 22 November 2017. We will share a cup of tea or coffee, compare tales of the holiday season, or perhaps to exchange some cookie recipes? Let's come in from the cold and give the new Board a warm start.


 
 
     
 
 
     
  Membership Renewal or Registration for 2018 has started.
To facilitate our members to renew their UNWG membership, please down-load and complete >>this Form (click bold letters for Membership Registration form) and email or post it to the UNWG office. If you need further instruction, please contact the UNWG office or call 01 2600 24276 or 01 2602 4284.
If you would like to be included in the UNWG’s 2018 Members Directory, please register or renew your membership before 30 March 2018.
For those members who wish to pay their membership fee through bank transfer, the name, address, and organization status of the member should be indicated on the bank payment slip. Please inform >>Linda Pek, the Membership Chairwoman, if your spouse has retired
, or will be retiring soon.
 
 
Did you know you can renew your membership by email and bank transfer? You will receive an email asking you to verify your membership information. You can send back an update or just a reply that it's fine and when we receive your bank transfer, you will be on the list for 2018. We will also have pre-printed Zahlscheins at our meetings and in the office if you would prefer to do the bank transfer in person. And, of course, you can always stop by the office to see our great Office Manager Team and renew.
Please help us out by renewing early this year and then keep the habit going.
 
     
 
 
       
         
 
     
 
The UNWG Career Guide Book
 
  This Guide Book is intended to provide practical information on employment in Vienna for spouses of employees of the Vienna-based UN organizations, permanent missions and embassies. It has been prepared by members of the United Nations Women’s Guild using their experiences and knowledge of living and/or working in Vienna. Official sources have been used wherever possible throughout this Guide Book and every attempt has been made to ensure that the information is accurate, clear, covering most aspects of employment law in Austria as of the revision date of November, 2011. Click >>here for a copy in PDF.  
     
 
     
 
Finding Help in Vienna
 
 
This resource book is compiled by the UNWG’s Family Status Committee for our members to obtain help during difficult times. The current edition has been updated and expanded based on "Crisis in Vienna" first published in 1997 by the International Women's Council and the UNWG. The current edition includes a new section on schools and kindergarten.  We believe that a woman is better to help herself when armed with the knowledge of her options and alternatives.  UNWG members may access “Finding Help in Vienna” in PDF >>here.  User name and password required.  Please contact the UNWG office for details.
