Leaving IBM but want to stay a member of IBM Club London West?

Provided you have 10 years of employment with IBM and have reached the retirement date for any IBM retirement plan you are contributing to (even if you are not yet drawing any pension from it) you can rejoin as a retiree member of IBM Club London West at the employee subscription rate, currently £26 per year.

Request an application form from RetireeClubMembership@uk.ibm.com and return it making IBM Club London West your club of choice.  If you are not sure if you meet the eligibility criteria, or don't quite meet the criteria, send in an application request anyway and your request will be reviewed.  We very much hope that we will retain contact with our Club, friends and former associates who are leaving now and see them at a Club event in the near future.

Why join the IBM Club ??? 
See the quotes (below) from some current members of the SHOWS subsection

How about this for feedback on recent booking of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf.

"The performance was cracking, one of the best plays/productions we've ever seen. Imelda Staunton was fantastic, as was Conleth Hill and the other cast members. My wife has been raving about it to all her friends! A good night was had by all (especially as it wasn't spoiled by constant eating and mobile phone manipulation during the performance). Thanks."

Or this about An American in Paris:
If you are fan of contemporary ballet you'll love it! If you are fan of George and Ira Gershwin's beautiful compositions and lyrics you'll love it! If you are sucker for a good love story, especially when it involves a ménage à quatre (four way relationship), then you'll love it. Put them all together and what's not to love about the musical stage production of An American In Paris, at the Dominion Theatre, Tottenham Court Road? Over 50 actors/dancers/singers plus a full orchestra deliver an amazing adaptation of MGM's Oscar winning 1951 film, which starred Gene Kelly and Lesley Caron. These roles are reprised by New York City Ballet principal dancer Robert Fairchild, who plays Jerry Mulligan, the American GI striving to make it as a painter in Paris, and British Royal Ballet soloist Leanne Cope who plays the beautiful young dancer Lise Dassin with whom he falls in love. The Dominion Theatre provides the perfect staging for this musical ballet, with amazing set designs and plenty of space to allow the dancers to demonstrate their balletic athleticism to the full. It really is this summer's "must see" production.
