How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Where can I meet other singles in this city?
Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
There is a growing expatriate community due to the continued growth of the local banking industry in Charlotte. This means that you will be able to find a variety of clubs, community groups and religious gatherings throughout the Charlotte area. Your best bet is to contact either your local consulate (if one is available to you), through friends or work colleagues or the local Chamber of commerce.
Most expatriates socialize with neighbors, colleagues, friends or relatives from home. Many find friends at the nearby country club or place of worship. The local chamber of commerce and foreign consulates are good resources in your search for social connections within the community. There is also a large number of professional and social club activities listed in local newspapers and on the Internet.
Numerous events for singles are offered during the week either at bars or hotels and there are plenty of singles clubs and organizations that go out of their way to connect people of similar interests.
If you want to meet people of your own nationality it is a good idea to get in contact with your local chamber of commerce or consulate, both of which tend to offer a wide variety of activities which you could be familiar with.
At this time, there are limited opportunities for spouses to network outside of the traditional networking opportunities such as through local consulates or the local chamber of commerce.
However, this is likely to change as Charlotte's expatriate population continues to grow and as such, additional networking opportunities will present themselves.
