Bazaar 2018 Registration


The 2018 Bazaar will take place on Sunday 16 December at Austria Center Vienna. This is UNWG’s biggest fundraiser for charity every year.  Because of the availability of space, the Bazaar this year will be in a new facility in the ACV complex. As the space is new, we need to plan earlier than previous years.  We encourage our members to register early for the stalls: National Goods, Restaurants and Entertainment. A set of registration forms were distributed at the first bazaar meeting in May. If you are interested to organize a stall, please down-load these forms (click for forms: >>National, >>Restaurant, >>Entertainment) and return them as instructed in the forms.  Please return the completed forms no later than 8 October for National Goods, and Restaurant stalls. Return the Entertainment performance forms by 30 September. You may contact me at UNWGbazaarvienna@gmail.com for more information, or you may contact the stall coordinators listed in the forms.

If you missed the Bazaar Coordinators' Meeting on Wednesday 10 October in the VIC, you should contact me or the UNWG Office for importnt information.

We look forward to your participation!

Ruiqing Zhou, Bazaar 2018 Chairwoman

 


 
 
 
     
  UNWG Membership Renewal or Registration for 2018

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 64284.
Please remember that your membership runs from January to December of a calendar year, regardless of when you originally joined or renewed. You can renew your membership simply by making a bank transfer to our membership account. However, if any of your personal details have changed, you do need to notify the membership Chair. The updated members list is sent to the Security Gate and takes two weeks to be processed.
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.

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 (August 2017}includes a new section on schools and kindergartens.  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.
