IBM Club Discounts



Your local IBM Club had migrated all communications and event notifications to IBM Connections.  This will enable the local Clubs to better communicate with the Club members and the Club members will be able to communicate and socialize with the Club Leaders. 

Club members may also create and start an activity group (for example, football, tennis, hiking, book club, etc) to network with other members using the forum feature.  

Retirees who travel to different locations may locate the local IBM Club nearest to them at the Global IBM Club Community. 


Please find your local IBM Club, or an IBM Club in an area of interest, using the links on the Global IBM Club Community home page at 

To access the “Florida IBM Club”, click on the following link:

To receive periodic notifications about Club updates, ensure you join and "follow" your local IBM Club Community by clicking on
