BACoS – Women in Sports: Empowering Women Through Sport | 03/11/2019


Research shows that sports can benefit girls and women by enhancing their health and well-being, fostering self-esteem and empowerment, facilitating social inclusion and integration, challenging gender norms and providing opportunities for leadership.

Join this new Women Series, organized by BACoS and many other Atlantan Chambers of Commerce, on Monday, March 11 to learn from Lucy Rushton (Atlanta United Football Club) and Trina Bolton (US Department, Sport Diplomacy) how sports can help women to achieve goals and break barriers!

The Women Series is a collaboration between the German, French, Netherlands and Belgian American Chambers of Commerce as well as the British-American Business Council and the Japan-America Society of Georgia.  Started in January 2014, the Women’s Series holds quarterly business events for professional women of the Atlanta international community. The goal of the Women’s Series is to bring educational and stimulating content to our attendees, while facilitating professional opportunities and networking among peers.

Fifth Annual Belgian Potluck | 1/26/2019


beATL is excited to invite you to its FIFTH edition of its Belgian Potluck on January 26th, 2019.   Please read carefully all the below crusty information!

Put your dear self in your culinary gear and prepare some tasty homemade dish(es) – preferably with a Belgian taste – to share.  We always have peers stressing about cooking so, don’t use it as an excuse: there are other ‘jobs’ available for you… We will have a sign-up sheet and each participating family must sign up to bring some Belgian homemade [we insist on that] culinary elements to the table!

Remember it is a kids-free evening, with just adults.  For obvious reasons.

Don’t wait to RSVP since attendance is limited to 100 guests.

Details of the evening will be emailed to all registered beATL-members.  If you didn’t get your invitation, contact your beATL Queen Patricia.

Logistics

  • When: Saturday January 26th, 2019 at 5.30 pm (no late arrivals please … we can’t start without your food).  Festivity runs until 10.30 pm.
  • Where: address will be privately shared in due time to those who RSVP-ed ‘in’
  • Parking: since this is in a private neighborhood, use the club house parking lot.  In the event the lot is full, park on the same side of the street, without blocking any driveways or fire hydrants.  Carpool if possible.
  • RSVP is a must [space is limited, no exception] – deadline to pay your entry fee is Monday 22/01!

  • Sign up sheet is a must – details will be shared after registration via Whoozin
  • NO CHILDREN, no exception – must be 21 or over.

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 …
