The Boca Raton Warburg Chapter works in close partnership with Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Typically the Chapter will host one or two events per academic year. ACG events are generally held on weekdays over lunch or in the late afternoon (3:30-5:00 p.m.) in order to engage FAU faculty, staff, and students, as well as the general public. In the past, the Chapter has partnered with organizations such as the German Consulate in Miami, the EU Center for Excellence at Florida International University and the University of Miami, Palm Beach State College, Broward College, and the Broward Alliance.
In 2016, the Boca Raton Chapter hosted discussions with Dr. Timo Lochocki, Transatlantic Fellow at the Europe Program at the German Marshall Fund, who discussed the future of the EU, and Dr. David Sirakov, Director of the Atlantic Academy Rhineland-Palatinate, who spoke on the rise of populism in Europe.
