Bringing Expats & Compatriots Together

The Xpats-Association is a non-profit organization founded on the principle of networking.

We strive to improve contacts between Expats and Compatriots, as well as business located in The Netherlands. The Xpats-Association continues to serve its members and interested parties by hosting a variety of networking events – approximately 6 events per year

– at great locations in the whole of Netherlands.

We believe in the value of making and maintaining people contacts at fun and enjoyable social events.

There are a lots of reasons to become a member of the Xpats-Association, but here are eight of our favorites:

  • The Xpats-Association are always providing us with great content. And better yet, they make it easy for you to hear from the Dutch industry’s best and brightest.

  • They connect us. Just think of how the 12 events associations hold year after year. It’s at these events that we make some of our most valuable connections – both industry professionals and life-long friends.

  • They energize us. It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day shuffle of things, but associations bring us back to life. They remind us why we do what we do and what it is we love about our particular industry.

  • They give us a voice. Associations pack power in numbers alone. They give us a voice (and amplify it) by advocating on our behalf.

  • They help us get ahead. It’s hard to stay on top of industry news and trends, but that’s where associations come in handy. They provide us with all the latest news without us having to do any deep digging.

  • They provide us with a support system. Whenever we have a question about something, we know we can always turn to the leaders and other members of our association. We have a whole network of people right at our fingertips!

  • They give us a sense of belonging. Associations make us feel like we’re a part of something. They make us feel welcome, and more importantly, like we belong.

  • They inspire us. Above all, associations inspire us. Every association has a mission statement, and at the end of the day, that’s kind of our mission statement too. It’s what we want to achieve, and we do that through our individual membership.
