Thank you for your interest in the Kaiserslautern chapter of the American German Business Club. We are proud to serve the German American community in the most vibrant cultural center in the Rhineland Pfalz. Our organization serves as a meeting place for Germans and Americans to gather to network, discuss current events, and business issues. We have been in Kaiserslautern for more than 20 years and are committed to encouraging all size businesses. You are invited to join us at any of our gatherings – whether you are in business or not.
We had a successful 2015 – season with the welcome addition of the new K’inLautern shopping mall in downtown Kaiserslautern, and the new IKEA. Our chapter held tours at both businesses and we look forward to continuing our relationship with our newest community members. We also awarded 5 scholarships to young men and women attending university and studying business. Our annual charity golf tournament on Ramstein Air Base had over 100 attendees and the proceeds went to our scholarship fund – as do the proceeds from all of our events.
We also enjoyed our first Business Expo produced by Ms. Yvonne Fischer, the chapter vice-president and Mr. Steve Mitchell, the chapter treasurer. Our business expo held at the Burgeschank Hotel in Hohenecken, was a rousing success with a day of networking, informational presentations and good food. Please join us at our next Business Expo!
In addition to the many engaging events we sponsored in 2015 – 2016, we were honored to host the national meeting of the American German Business Club including: Bonn, Heidelberg, Wiesbaden, Stuttgart and Munich. Our hosts at the Barbarassahof Hotel made everyone feel quite welcome.
For the upcoming 2016 – 2017 season we are excited to offer new and engaging programs. See our schedule of events listed below. We are publishing our calendar for the next 18 months so you may save the dates! Please join us at our events. New members are welcome, and we cherish our long standing members as well.
This is also an election year for officer positions on our board of directors. If you are interested in volunteering to serve on the board, or support specific events, please let me know.
