Thanks to our extraordinary Board of Advisors and other members for your ideas on upcoming events.
We're planning events for the next 5 quarters. Members - your input is welcome!!
On events of different types...
First there will be regular Advisory Board meetings, and we last met on September 17th. Next up... Thursday, December 13th, 4-5pm. More
Then ongoing we will decide the meeting frequency at the December meeting. Typically I would suggest these be quarterly, possibly part of other events like the Exporter series being planned for 2019.
I also suggest that we consider a Young Global Leaders (YGL) series in parallel to other programming. These can be helpful to connect to younger leaders in the community who may be at firms that are not members yet.
Often Global Chamber chapters do tours of global business organizations... and so there can be 2-3 of those, typically every year. And most do events with collaborators, and we're blessed to be working with a variety of outstanding regional organizations including BABC - SF.
Invariably there are other opportunities that come up all year long from our members, the consulates and other visitors. These are periodic opportunities.
And finally Global Chamber has weekly globinars - for our members to tap in to the latest trends and tips on global business opportunities. Those happen in parallel to all the chapter activity described here.
And so in addition to these other events and activities, here is a DRAFT of our event agenda for 4Q2018 and through 2019.
Your thoughts? Let me know at SFO@globalchamber.org.
