Chicago

Chicago is at the center of the mid-west business community, and the ACG’s  Chicago Warburg Chapter engages the business community, Chicago’s universities, and those members of the community interested in transatlantic relations. The Chapter often partners with the German Consulate and the Goethe Institute to host events. We regularly host policy discussions on a range of issues. Recent speakers have included Dr. Andreas Dombret, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank; Howard Dean, former Governor of Vermont and former Chair of the Democratic National Committee and Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House; Quirin Blendl, Director of Cybersecurity and Digital Policy at VdTUV; and Ambassador Thomas Matussek, former German Ambassador to the United Kingdom, the United Nations, and India. Topics have ranged from the future of the EU and the euro to cyber security challenges, and general discussions concerning the importance of the transatlantic partnership.

In the spring of 2018, the ACG’s Chairman John B. Emerson, former U.S. Ambassador to Germany, shared his insights on the current political landscape in both countries and engaged in a lively dicussion with our Midwest members and friends.
