THE AMERICAN CLUB OF MADRID

Membership FAQ

    Do I have to be American to join the American Club of Madrid?

    No, membership is open to all. At present, more than twenty countries are represented in the Club’s membership, which is divided approximately as follows: 40% American, 40% Spanish, 10% dual citizens, and 10% other nationalities. Typically, the profiles of our non-American members include: people who work for American companies or those that have operations in the U.S., individuals who have studied abroad, those who have lived in the U.S. at some point, people who have an interest in U.S. politics, culture, and traditions, or simply those who want to network in an international environment with American ideals.

    What do I need to do to become a member of the American Club of Madrid?

    To become a member you will need to submit a written application form and payment, either online or in-person at one of our events, and be approved by the Board of Directors. Before you can submit an application, you will need to find a member to sponsor you.

    What if I don't have a sponsor? 

    Email our Membership chair and they will arrange to meet with you and introduce you to other members of the club.

    How long will it take for my member application to be processed?

    Pending applications are reviewed at each Board of Directors meeting (the first Tuesday of each month, except August). Your membership will be activated upon approval and you will be notified by email. Please note that payment must be received in order for an application to be reviewed. Applications pending payment for more than one month will be canceled.

    Am I eligible for member benefits while my application is pending?

    Some. You will be eligible for the member pricing for events and to participate in the member raffles at these events.

    You will not be able to vote in a General Assembly nor will you have access to member-only content until your application has been approved by the Board of Directors.

    Your membership renewal date will be set to one year from the date of acceptance.

    What happens to my payment if my membership is not approved?

    We will fully refund your payment.

    March 6, 2020:

    We are happy to tell you that we are in the process of moving to Wild Apricot, a club management platform that we hope will make it easier for our members to manage their American Club membership, sign up for events, and communicate with other club members in new and exciting ways.

    Over the next few weeks, you may encounter links to the domain https://americanclubofmadrid.wildapricot.org while we complete our migration, and this is normal. If you have any problems with membership or event registration, please send us an email.
