Basel: 2017 Schedule of Events (2018)

Dear Alumni

We hope you've enjoyed a pleasant 2017 so far. This year we are a bit later than usual with our newsletter, due to busy professional and private lives, which is actually quite a good sign. We would like to begin with a couple announcements: First, we have a new regional representative in New York, Sara Cousins. We say hello to Sara and goodbye and thank you to Brianna Clements. Second, we would like to try some new ideas with our events. Specifically, we would like to gather a larger number of alumni for Thanksgiving Dinner in November 2017. Corinna Grisostomi, event officer, is opening the door to her home and invites us all to the first Thanksgiving Dinner of the CAA Basel.
