June Members Forum: Urban Agriculture @ Metro Atlanta Urban Farm
Jun 6 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

The Council is taking a field trip! Join us for a tour of Metro Atlanta Urban Farm led by Bobby Wilson, CEO of MAUF followed by a discussion on the role of urban agriculture in sustainability led by Eric Moncrief, host of Green Guy Radio and CEO of Nvirotech Recycling, LLC. In Atlanta and the surrounding counties, over half a million people live without access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Wilson is on a mission to provide these nutritional needs to his community. Urban agriculture has become a rapidly growing path to address the disastrous state of malnutrition all across America. Wilson and Metro Atlanta Urban Farm are leading the way by using urban agriculture to address problems in economic development, community vitality, and environmental sustainability. As many in our own communities suffer from the social ills of food deserts, it’s vital that we understand the steps being taken to provide economic and nutritional relief.

Belgium – EU – U.S.: Business and Politics @ The Commerce Club
Jun 14 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Featuring:

  • His Excellency, Ambassador Dirk Wouters, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Belgium to the U.S.

As the political and economic environment in Europe shifts post-Brexit, and in light of major elections that are taking place, Belgium is seizing the moment to gain additional regional influence. Brussels houses most of the EU institutions and, despite of its size, the nation is considered an important global trader. Join the Council as we host the Belgian Ambassador to the U.S., Dirk Wouters, for a conversation about where Belgium stands as the European Union goes through reorganization, and what it means for U.S. businesses with presence in this country. On May 25, President Trump is set to be in Brussels to attend a summit of NATO nations, and Ambassador Wouters will comment on the outcome of this official meeting.
