A heartfelt welcome to AICZ members, newcomers to Switzerland and those just discovering or rediscovering the AICZ!
For 2020, your Executive Committee (EC) is looking to continue offering the diverse range of activities and events that attract the interests and participation of our membership. Already planned for the year is a members only networking event at the Dolder Grand, a day trip to Rigi, complimentary AGM dinner for members and a bus tour of Zurich Airport. The 4th of July will be on a Saturday this year, and we are lining up a memorable celebration with good food and entertainment, outstanding prizes and fun games. Plan now to join us for all these events!
Of course, our classic TGIF informal meet-ups carry on. This 38-year monthly tradition continues to be a regular `touchpoint` for members and provides many newcomers with their first introduction to the AICZ. Participation is consistently strong and first-timers find TGIF an easy way to get introduced to our club and members. The casual atmosphere and good cheer encourage many to become members.
You may also see us doing similar events that were well attended and received in 2019. This included the Memorial Day picnic, 1st of August National Day brunch, a hosted day trip to Arbon, New Members Reception hosted by Oracle and a hugely successful and sold-out Thanksgiving dinner held in collaboration with the American Women´s Club of Zürich. Our special relationship with Markus Leitner, Swiss Ambassador to Iran, also offered a unique glimpse into the diplomatic role of Switzerland with the USA. The event received rave reviews and points to the type of content and activities that members find meaningful and of value.
For the coming year, we aim to increase our membership and sponsorship engagements. We will also deepen our relationships with select firms and like-minded organizations that resonate with the AICZ's brand character, vision and values. Thanks to all our members for contributing to the success of every event with their interest, appreciation, support, membership and involvement in our club . Our collective efforts have generated steady growth and positive results in 2019 and we intend to continue that trend into the new year.
‘Fellowship, Friendship, and Service’ continue to be our motto as we bring English-speaking people of all nations together while appreciating our ties and relationship with the Swiss local community. We look forward to your involvement and support of the welcoming American spirit!
Wishing you all a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2020!
