Frequently Asked Questions
What is LINK Denmark?
The Ladies’ International Network København is a volunteer-run network of women from countries all over the world who gather through LINK to build a social network. LINK is purely social and informal in nature – our aim is to help members expand their circle of friends and get involved in joint events and shared interests. You can read the LINK Bylaws here.
Who can join?
Any internationally minded women can join LINK! Whether you are a non-Dane that would like to meet with other international women using English as the language of communication; or a Danish woman who wishes to make international friends and converse in English.
WHAT NATIONALITIES do you have?
It is very rich and varied. At the moment, it is approximately 25% British, 16% Danish, 15% European, 13% American, with the balance being spread over 40 other different nations and continents, as far away as New Zealand and Chile - making us a truly international organization!

What is my membership fee spent on?
The membership fee covers our running costs (administration, website, software, domain costs, bank fees), subsidises events, and provides annual subsidies for our subgroups.
WHO RUNS LINK?
LINK's committee and subgroup organisers are all member volunteers. All members can help take part in the running of the group and are invited to attend the AGM every April. They can also contact the committee any time to raise issues or make their views known. Committee positions are advertised in the newsletter and private Facebook group when they become vacant. We also offer help to any member interested in setting up a new subgroup.
HOW CAN I JOIN A SUBGROUP?
All LINK members can join any subgroup they like, although there is occasionally a waiting list for some of the most popular ones. Click here to see a current list of active subgroups. Subgroups receive a subsidy from LINK, but depending on the activity there may be extra costs when you attend to cover running expenses, e.g. tennis court hire, snacks, etc. Once you have joined LINK simply contact the subgroup coordinator of the group you’re interested in to find out more.
CAN I SET UP MY OWN SUBGROUP?
Yes! Any member can set up a subgroup if there is enough interest. We provide help to set up the group and a small annual subsidy to put towards your subgroup activities after you have been running for 3 months.
IS LINK JUST FOR MOTHERS?
No, in fact over one-third of our members either have grownup children or none at all. The Events Coordinator organises different types of events that cater to all tastes and all age groups. Events take place both during the day and at evenings, and occasionally weekends.
IS LINK FOR WORKING WOMEN?
Yes! Many of our members work here in Denmark and so we also organise events at weekends and evenings to cater for them.
