About Us ...

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.

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