The Future Begins Today

Whether you are hopeful or anxious or both, one thing seems clear - this week and the coming months will bring change in many ways. 

Even at GABA, you see our logo and our newsletter in a new look today. This is part of a larger renewal which will bring a stronger connection within the German American business community as well as new membership benefits and new event formats. This month already,

  • You will have the choice of an Executive and a Professional membership
  • You can sign-up, renew, or upgrade your company membership for the old price and enjoy new benefits next year

You find more details in the 'Inside GABA' section below. We are also excited about the new GABA website which we will reveal in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned. Amidst these unprecedented times, we hope we can contribute some normalcy and community to you all. We are stronger together.
