Corporate Membership
A gathering of some readers of The Local
11:32 CEST+02:00
Our readers tell us that they want The Local to give them more help to face the practical challenges they face living abroad. And they tell us that they want to understand more about these societies, to understand the people they meet every day.

At the end of 2017 we introduced Membership, to allow us to get closer to our paying members and respond better to their needs. The uptake has been phenomenal. With more and more companies taking out Membership on behalf of their international staff, we have created three Corporate Membership plans for organisations of different sizes.

With Corporate Membership your organisation gets a fixed number of individual Memberships to distribute to staff, clients or contacts.

Membership Benefits

✓ Invitations to international networking events organized by The Local

"Few things are as daunting as pitching up in a new country but The Local quickly became a trusted source of local news and knowledge. We would often refer to it as we were preparing for meetings and events."

Matthew Barzun, US Ambassador to Sweden, 2009-2011

I wish I'd had access to The Local France when I moved to Nice eight years ago. The information you write about is invaluable. The everyday stuff that people need to know, for example info about the strikes, areas where there are other English speaking people. The article about saying "Bonjour" when addressing a French person BEFORE speaking to them, was brilliant. Who would have known that something so little would mean so much. I don't mind paying for the subscription, it's worth it.
