General Meeting
Wednesday 20 March 2019
Vienna International Center, F-1075


Welcoming Coffee
Wednesday 27 March 2019
Vienna International Center, F-1075

UNWG members are invited to learn about ARICSA (Association of Retired International Civil Servents Austria). Women tend to let the spouse manage the business parts of life and death…registration of birth, life and health insurance, paying bills, while we are busy bringing up children, shopping and cooking every day while holding down a job outside of home. When we are suddenly confronted with a change of the situation such as divorce, illness and death, we are often lost.  If your spouse or yourself is a member of the ARISA, you might find some expert advice or referral there. Jerry Baton, the ARISA President will present the organization to UNWG members.



2019 is a year of Ukrainian culture in Austria. Please come and share with us this Coffee Morning.

Those members who have kindergarten kids are welcome to bring them as UNWG member Maryna GUSHCHYNA will entertain them with a robotics master-class.

Authentic pastry and coffee will be served.
