President's Letter

Dear Members, 

I'm happy to say our Gaelic & Garlic night was a great success.  We joined with the Italian Bar Association for an evening of fun and great food at Mangia Tutti.  Who knew lawyers could have such great singing voices!  Special thanks to our own Michael Hale who worked with the Italians in setting up the event.  We've posted the pictures to our website, you can view them by clicking here.

Last year the good folks at Squire Patton & Boggs put together an informative overview of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  Although an EU regulation, the GDPR will have a huge impact on how US companies handle data.  With just one year to go before the GDPR becomes applicable in all EU member states, we will be presenting an update on what we have learned over the last year and best practices for preparing for the year ahead. We have decided to expand the event by partnering with the British American Business Council and the German American Chamber of Commerce.  We are also adding NCC Group to the panel to bring their point of view.  Whether you are interested in the field, or are looking for a great opportunity to network with other European chapters, this is an event you do not want to miss.  As a reminder, the event is free for members!  Members and non members can register by clicking here.

The Irish Network Bay Area have invited us to join them again this year for their annual home brewing education event.  This was a great event last year.  Whether you're interested in learning the craft, or just like to sample some local brews, don't miss out! For further details, click here.

These are some great upcoming events.  I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can at them!
