Our Atlanta Warburg Chapter works in close partnership with the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern US, Inc. (GACC South). Together the Chapter and the GACC South hosted seven events in 2016, including discussions with Dr. Céline-Agathe Caro, Senior Policy Analyst at the Washington office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung; Dr. Andreas Dombret, Member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank; Dr. Christoph von Marschall, Chief Diplomatic Correspondent of Der Tagesspiegel and 1999 ACG Kellen Fellow. Topics have ranged from the European migration crisis to the future of the EU and the euro to the rise of populism, and general discussions on the importance of the German-American partnership.
The Atlanta Chapter also partners with organizations such as the World Affairs Council of Atlanta, the Goethe Zentrum, the German Consulate, and various local universities.
