Brand new ye­ar with with the GCBA

Das Schwarze Brett - - INSIDE STORY -

The New Ye­ar is he­re and the Ger­man Ca­na­di­an Bu­si­ness As­so­cia­ti­on (GCBA) is exci­ted about do­ing mo­re bu­si­ness in 2018! A bu­si­ness as­so­cia­ti­on pro­vi­des its mem­bers with op­por­tu­nities to net­work and sha­re in­for­ma­ti­on & re­sour­ces. They al­so help to pro­mo­te cul­tu­ral, bu­si­ness and pro­fes­sio­nal in­te­rests.

As a Ger­man bu­si­ness as­so­cia­ti­on, they al­so fur­ther good re­la­ti­ons amonst the Ger­m­an­spea­king po­pu­la­ti­on, & sup­port as­so­cia­ti­ons, in­sti­tu­ti­ons, cha­ri­ties and church­es that help Ger­m­ans.

The first event of the New Ye­ar will most li­kely be a ca­su­al pub night for an op­por­tu­ni­ty to meet new mem­bers and greet the re­turning ones. In Fe­bru­ary, they will ha­ve their An­nu­al Ge­ne­ral Mee­ting for mem­bers on­ly. In March the­re will be a Spring din­ner mee­ting and in April the­re will ano­ther vi­sit to BCIT. In May, the­re will be so­me kind of out­door event, such as a din­ner crui­se and they usual­ly hold their last mee­ting be­fo­re sum­mer with a Pub Night on a pa­tio.

The­re are 4 le­vels of mem­bership:

Full Bu­si­ness Mem­ber

As­so­cia­te Mem­ber

Cor­po­ra­te Mem­ber

Stu­dent Mem­ber

Past events in­clu­de a din­ner mee­ting in the Bau­haus Re­stau­rant, ow­ned by for­mer filmma­ker Uwe Boll & a lovely Christ­mas Ga­la in the Roy­al Van­cou­ver Yacht Club. The Christ­mas Ga­la had en­ter­tain­ment pro­vi­ded by the S-bahn Band and a Raff­le that ma­de over $400 and in­clu­ded over 22 pri­zes. The­re was dan­cing and di­ning and de­li­cious des­serts. The GCBA al­so met at the Van­cou­ver Christ­mas Mar­ket, to en­joy Glu­eh­wein and the Christ­mas Spi­rit, whi­le new mem­ber Ro­bert Hol­ler was kind en­ough to purcha­se Ba­va­ri­an Pret­zels for ever­yo­ne.

In the last se­veral months, the GCBA has se­en at least 5 new mem­bers join the As­so­cia­ti­on and one new cor­po­ra­te mem­ber. A big thanks goes out to Bea­tri­ce Schrei­ber, the Pre­si­dent, and the other mem­bers of the Bo­ard, who are wor­king hard be­hind the sce­nes to or­ga­ni­ze events, find new spon­sors, re­cruit new mem­bers and at­tend a va­rie­ty of mee­tings. They wish ever­yo­ne a very mer­ry Christ­mas and a Hap­py New Ye­ar!
