Bazaar 2018 Preparation Meeting


Wednesday 23 May 2018, 09:30-11:45
Vienna International Center, Room F1075

It’s time to plan for Bazaar 2018!

Due to availability of the ACV, Bazaar 2018 is tentatively set for Sunday 16 December.
 
We invite all members who are interested to volunteer in Bazaar 2018 to the first preparation meeting of the year.  We particularly invite stallholders of Bazaar 2017 and potential stallholders of Bazaar 2018.  We would like to share your experience (good or bad).  If you have questions about how to organize the Goods stall (National stall) or the Restaurant stalls, NOW is the time to ask. NOW is the time to start working.
The Bazaar is UNWG’s biggest fund raiser of the year.  We raised more than €200,000 in Bazaar 2016.  With this money and other funds we raised through the year, we were able to support 33 projects in 2017. The Charity Review Committee is hard at work to process over 200 proposals this year. 

We look forward to volunteering with you in Bazaar 2018!

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 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.
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.
