Thursday 15th of June 2017: AGM, Election of Board Members and Summer Luncheon


IWCE refreshes image by developing new logo



As the 50th Anniversary of the IWCE is coming in 2017-18, the current board have thought to refresh the Club’s image by updating the current logo, which is 10 years old. Designer Karen Hessels created three proposals —which can be slightly adjusted still—. These were presented in the June newsletter.

We asked Karen to create a regular version and a special Anniversary edition of all three proposals; the latter for use around our 50th year celebrations.

Members will choose the new Club logo by vote at the AGM on the 15th of June.

Thanks for your vote! IWCE earned a donation through the Rabobank Clubkas Campaign

Last April Rabobank Eindhoven-Veldhoven organised a sponsorship campaign

— the Rabobank Clubkas Campagne— where some of their profits will be donated to local clubs and associations to help them fund future projects and activities. The IWCE was approved as an eligible club for this campaign and got voted to receive a small donation for our 'Clubkas'!


The donation that the IWCE receives from this campaign will go towards helping us celebrate the club's 50th anniversary in 2017/18.
