Dear GABC Members, Partners & Friends,
As we near the end of year, on behalf of the GABC and its Board of Directors, I want to wish you a festive holiday season, a Merry Christmas, and most of all, a prosperous New Year!

The GABC can look back on a very successful and active 2019 - and that is thanks to you , our members, member corporations and sponsors -- who make our work possible, who engage, attend events, serve as speakers & panelists - in short, bring this network to life. We thank those who joined us as new members in 2019 and others for their continued membership and look forward to partnering and working with you and on your behalf in 2020.

Last weekend, more than 130 guests gathered at the UMass Club to celebrate our Annual Gala , the social highlight of our year. We enjoyed each other's company and conversations, and the view onto a sparkling and festive Boston! I would like to thank German Consul General Nicole Menzenbach for her remarks and the Consulate's continued support of our mission: to grow the German-American business network in New England and to foster business opportunities and relationships. Thank you to Lufthansa Group , our Gala sponsor, all our corporate and individual donors and supporters for ensuring we can continue to work on behalf of our members.

This past October, we launched our - from now on - annual flagship event: the German American Economic Forum with focus on Healthcare Innovation at Northeastern University , which brought together top level executives and CEOs from German healthcare companies. The 3-minute highlight video we shared at the Gala with our guests is now also available for you to view here . The next German American Economic Forum will be held under the topic of " Smart Cities " in October 2020 - more information will be forthcoming soon.

In the meantime, take advantage of our Early Bird Special register for the German American Business Outlook 2020 (Jan 30th @ J.P. Morgan). More information also below.

Happy Holidays and very Happy New Year,

Emily Westhoven
Executive Director
German-American Business Council of Boston, Inc.
