JUNE 2017 

Dear Members & Friends, 

Please meet our new President Ard Crebas (Intertrust Group) and Vice President Manori de Silva (Stanton Law, LLC), both appointed on May 2nd, 2017 at our Annual Members' Meeting.

Manori de Silva 

A message from our new President: 

"I look forward to my new role as President of the Netherlands American Chamber of Commerce of the Southeast United States. While Manori de Silva (Vice President) and I will obviously seek to continue the great work Coen Vrolijk and Chris Hopkins have done in the past two years, we also have some exciting new events in the pipeline that we hope to share with you as soon as possible. One of these events is the upcoming ATL National Soccer Cup charity event for which we are actively recruiting players (see below).  We are also working with Maarten van der Putten of ParkMobile to get greater involvement from young professionals in the Chamber.   One other area that we have long sought to develop is input from the academic institutions in Atlanta and Georgia, including academics who have Dutch connections and the student population interested in international business. As we all know, the Chamber exists by the grace of its members.  We thank you for becoming and staying a member.  We invite you to provide feedback on any topics or speakers that you would like the Chamber to explore. We look forward to seeing you at our future events! 

Wishing you all a great summer!
