VS: Spring Newsletter - Important Announcements!

Chamber Logo
April 2017 

Dear Members & Friends, 

Hard to believe the first quarter is already over! We have some exciting events lined up before the summer that we would like to make sure you have marked in your agendas. But first our President and Vice President would like to say a few words before the end of their term. 

As an organization "for and by" members, success is created by all of us!
Events, activities and meetings have as purpose not only to be informative and entertaining, but definitely also to have an opportunity to link with each other, meet new people and grow our network and "toolbox" for business growth. The focus of the board is to provide the opportunities to do so. Collaboration with other chambers has increased and targeted topics have been highlighted during Breakfast meetings, Lunch & Learns and "Behind the scenes". As a result the membership continues to grow. Visibility to who our members are and what their companies do is important for NACCSE. To make our network even stronger we are starting a new initiative; before events, one or two members will have an opportunity to give a brief overview of what they do.  We strongly believe that this kind of information and knowledge will support further growth of the Chamber and the function it provides for all of us. We have a "circle of trust"; using each other's services will help create the success we all are working for! 
- Coen Vrolijk, President 

Over the past two years we have seen continued growth and participation from our valued members and guests here at the chamber.  It's our goal to add value, not only in the Atlanta business community, but across borders building relationships that foster long term friendships and success. We appreciate everyone's participation to collectively make the Netherlands American Chamber of Commerce of the Southeast a proud membership to be a part of.
  - Chris Hopkins, Vice-President NACCSE
