Growing organisation for women in moving

Sep 18, 2014
LIMA (Ladies in Moving Association) is a rapidly growing organisation, formed in 2012 after the IAM conference in Washington DC, intended to provide support for women who move to a different country because of their husbands’ new assignments.

The organisation, founded by Marina Svetlichnaya from ARCO in Moscow and administered by Alexandra Borokova from Interdean in Moscow, meets annually: it last met at IAM in Vancouver and intended to meet again in Orlando this October.  Members of LIMA may post information free of charge about their companies and the services they provide on the organisation’s website.

Since its formation LIMA has been able to provide a wide range of advice for women on the move.  This included someone who wondered if the climate in Brazil would be dangerous for her son with asthma; a woman who was anxious about the safety of moving to Abijan; a lady enquiring about the cost of accommodation in Paris; and someone wondering whether it is a good idea to take a bike to Moscow.

LIMA’s website says that the organisation is looking to establish contacts with local Women’s International Clubs in different countries and to participate in charity activities.

Currently LIMA has around 150 members and a growing LinkedIn membership.   Members include: Asian Tigers Mobility, Worldwide Movers Africa, BTR International, Santa Fe and Gosselin Group.
