Thanks to our Board of Advisors and all our members in metro Phoenix for your support and collaboration!
Regarding event planning, here are initial ideas for the end of the year and through the end of 2019.
There are a variety of global business events, meetings and activities.
First there are regular Advisory Board meetings, typically 3-4 times per year.
Second we're kicking off Young Global Leaders (YGL) in parallel to other programming on October 25, 2018. These events can be helpful to connect to younger leaders in the community who may be at firms that may or may not be members yet.
Often Global Chamber chapters do tours of global business organizations... and so there could be 2-3 of these per year.
And we do collaborator events, and we're blessed to be working with a variety of outstanding regional organizations like binational chambers (SACC, GACC, etc), Promexico, Global Ties Arizona and many more.
Invariably there are other global business event opportunities that come up all year long from our members, the consulates and other visitors to the metro..
And 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.
That's a lot!! Now here is a DRAFT of our event agenda for 4Q2018 and through 2019 of other events besides the ones above.
Your thoughts? Let me know at PHX@globalchamber.org.
