In the Netherlands, those looking for a place to network are sure to find something that will meet their needs: for professional women, there is WIN (Women’s International Network) in Amsterdam that provides women with a forum for meeting, networking, and getting down to business, and, along similar lines, Connecting Women, in The Hague. Then, of course, there are International Rotary Clubs, for both men and women. Those who are looking for a nationality-based club, there are plenty on offer, as well as clubs based on a particular hobby, such as dance, drama or art. For those who are simply looking for a group of friends, or a source of fun family outings, there are also several clubs to join, in places as diverse as Eindhoven, Maastricht, Breda, Dordrecht, Enschede, Groningen, and more – and, of course, the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht.

The real estate agents have found you the ideal place to live, the movers have brought over your possessions from another part of the world, an acquaintance or two at work has shown you the places around town, and you think you are on the road to settling in – but not quite! For those who like the company of others, either occasionally or often, it’s the circle of like-minded friends that one needs in order to be able to enjoy the fairly long blustery winters of the Netherlands. Social clubs are a great place to meet other expatriates who have recently arrived, as well as those ‘expats’ and other members who have been around for a while – as well as locals, of course.
