Welcome to the Association of IVCs (AIVC)

UK Social Groups Organising Meetups since 1946 ...

The Association of IVCs (AIVC) is a national network of independent social, sports and cultural groups throughout the UK.  The groups exist to provide social, recreational and cultural opportunities for students, graduates professionals and people with similar interests ... and have lots of fun doing it!

There are 40 groups in the UK with a total of around 3,200 members.

All AIVC member groups are voluntary organisations that are run on a not-for-profit basis.

Each IVC Club is organised for their members by their members with support from a local committee elected annually. This allows the people in each club to manage and promote membership of their group in the ways that suit their particular circumstances.

The AIVC (Association of IVC Clubs) is a volunteer committee elected each year at the National AGM of the Association from Officers and observers from the member clubs.

The AIVC committee exists to provide advice and services to the member clubs and tries to help them co-operate and support each other in an effective manner.


How do I join a group?
To find your nearest group, go to the "Club Contact List" in the home menu.

Once you've found the groups that you might be interested in joining, you should visit their web site and ask them about their club and how you can best join up and start having even more fun!

At the end of this page is a diary of special National events organised by our club members throughout the UK.

If you want to go on any of these super national events ... remember, you must be a paid-up member of one of our clubs in order to join in the fun.
