New Comers Club

Welcome to INL's Newcomers Club.


The INL Newcomers Club was started in November 2010 by new employees who wanted ways to meet new people and a means to find stuff to do around town. The Newcomers Club will be whatever we make it, we have this website and a mailing list to try and get the word out. Anyone can and is encouraged to organize events. The club is open to anyone and everyone with our target audience being employees who have been here less than five years.



Purpose of INL Newcomers Club

  • Provide a mechanism for new employees to meet new people, make friends and provide a path to getting involved in other things through the people they meet.
  • Act as a starting point for organization of events.
  • Provide networking opportunities for new employees with fellow employees outside their organization.
  • Provide information about local events to new employees.
