Our Atlanta Warburg Chapter works in close partnership with organizations such as the German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern US, Inc. (GACC South), the Goethe Zentrum, the German Consulate, and various local organizations and universities.
Each year, the Atlanta Chapter hosts several policy discussions. In recent years speakers have included Peter Beyer, Transatlantic Coordinator for the Federal Foreign Ministry and Member of the German Bundestag (CDU); Metin Hakverdi, Member of the German Bundestag (SPD); Annette Schavan, former Federal Minister of Education and Research; Juliane Schäuble, US Correspondent for Der Tagesspiegel. Topics have ranged from geopolitical challenges, labor migration and the refugee influx, as well as the general discussions on the importance of the German-American partnership.
