Then go left down the hall and into the banqet room. The entire room is reserved for us. We will begin with a Prosecco Reception for all to enjoy. Around 18:00 we will ask you to take your seats. The restaurant servers will take our drink and dinner food orders.

After all are seated and drink and dinner orders have been placed, we will conduct our Annual Member Meeting (maximum 30 minutes, required by German law), where we will hear a recap of the preceding year, what’s coming up this year, and take a look at the club finances. Concluding the meeting will be our Board of Directors Election for 2024.

The Prosecco Reception will be paid by your club. Pay for your dinner and drinks directly to the restaurant staff before you leave. Stimulating conversation, and the chance to connect with new and old friends are free.
