Some important tips:
although the term “potluck” suggests a random assortment of dishes, the idea is to focus on Belgian (style) food
bring your dish ready-to-eat in a to-go container; we are in a Club House with no kitchen
bring a serving dish and serving utensils; again: we are in a Club House …
label your dish(es) if they cannot be traced back to you
all those who are gluten intolerant, food allergenic, vegans or have any kind dietary challenge(s) are requested to bring their own food to avoid any mishaps.
Party guests are expected to help with the clean up …
2019 promises a lot of beATL activities so be ready for a sparkling year. Mini committees are in place to offer you various events of which our most popular Potluck coming on Saturday January 26th (details & private RSVP’s coming soon)!

Introduction to Art of Feminine Presence … How to get noticed and attract more of what you want for professional and personal success … That’s the topic of the next Women’s Series organized by various local Chambers of Commerce including our own Belgian Chamber.
Women in business often feel pressure to fit in with their male counterparts, feeling pressure to suppress female traits that are an integral part of any businesswomen’s arsenal for success.
Critical for the art of negotiation, team building and leadership, these natural traits and skills in women should be in the forefront of their tools for success.
The speaker, Adele Wang, will teach you how to express your natural feminine traits to get the attention you really want for more successful business and personal relationship.
When: Monday 12 November 2018 from 6-8 pm
Where: Thompson Hine | Two Alliance Center, 3560 Lenox Road NE, Suite 1600, Atlanta, Georgia 30326-4266
