General Meetings

GM Collage 2015Each month, September through June, INC organizes gatherings for our membership. We strive to take you to unique places that perhaps you didn’t know about or wouldn’t have access to on your own. Or maybe we’re just taking you somewhere you’d prefer to visit with a group. Either way we try to introduce INC members to the cultural life here in Madrid.

If you have a venue or topic you would like to suggest, please contact our General Meetings team at GMs@incmadrid.org
