The purpose of the Swiss Club of NSW is to promote social activities and friendships within the Swiss Community of NSW, and encourage friendly interaction with other clubs, Australians and Swiss affiliates.
WHO WE ARE
The Swiss Club of NSW became a Club in 1924 when the former Swiss Society of NSW changed into the Swiss Club of NSW and succeeded the Society. However, the Swiss Club of NSW was founded on Wednesday, 2 October 1968 and currently has around 300 members and growing! We are a non-profit organisation and therefore membership fees are kept as low as possible. We meet up and organise functions at various venues, and have links to other groups/clubs and the Swiss Consulate to support all Swiss activities in NSW.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
If you decide to join the Swiss Club you will receive three copies of ‘Swiss Community News’ each year, plus other member benefits like discounted member invitations to Swiss events! We send free monthly eNewsflashes for our events and event reminders, along with all things Swiss in NSW and abroad. If you are not on our emailing list, please subscribe by filling in your details on our SCN tab. You can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram to keep connected.
As the Swiss Club is a community group your involvement is vital. We rely on volunteers and your feedback. Share your ideas or other thoughts about the Swiss Club with us. We are looking to get more members involved with our program, events and interesting articles, so please contact our webmaster to give us your feedback.
