Save the Date
  • Tuesday, March 21, 2017 - Filing US Taxes. Also this year Maria van de Bosch will explain US tax filing for first-time filers who are here temporarily, but  her talk is also interesting for the "local Dutch" who are here to stay. There will be plenty of time for asking lots of questions.

We are always looking for volunteers to help organize social, cultural and business events and help with our social media activities. Volunteering is a great way to expand your network and learn new skills. No experience required.

NAF event registration fees are non-refundable, however transfer of tickets to people who fit the same ticketing category will be permitted.
