The EACC relies on its committees to provide direction and support for our members and our activities. For example, the Austrian-Swiss-German (ASG) Committee is supporting plans for EACC participation at the Zinzinnati USA Oktoberfest (Saturday, September 16 -- look for ticket sales to start in August!), and the French American Business Alliance (FABA, out of which the EACC was born) is helping with plans for the Beaujolais Nouveau Premiere (Thursday, November 16). (I’m told there also used to be a BeNeLux Committee, and I’d love to get that restarted!) Service on EACC Committees is a great way to build new contacts, learn more about the work and value of the EACC, and to support the organization and our work to build better transatlantic trade and economic ties. You can read my musings about the EACC committee structure in this month’s “Behind the Scenes.” And if you’d like to learn more about our committees or how you can be considered for committee membership, please contact me at email@example.com.
