Last Tuesday, the GACC South hosted its annual New Member Reception in the Atlanta office. Over 120 attendees braved wind, rain and Atlanta traffic to attend the gathering.
It has been a good year for membership in the GACC South. In the past 12 months, the GACC has welcomed 116 new members; including Porsche Consulting, Inc., Merrill Lynch, Audi of America, Starke Inc., and Viking Advisory Group. Of the guests in attendance, 31 were new members. GACC South members both new and old mingled and networked throughout the evening, while enjoying the catering by Alpharetta-based German bakery and deli Breadtime. The fantastic array of German foods included potato salad, Frikadellen, a variety of amazingly delicious breads and cheeses, apple strudel and cookies.
Though the reception was for welcoming the new, we also had to say farewell to our special guest Dr. Lutz Görgens, the Outgoing Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany here in Atlanta. GACC South President & CEO Martina Stegmeier spoke and presented Dr. Görgens with a book of pictures from GACC South events that he has attended.
We would again like to give a big thank you to all of you who attended the reception and extend another warm welcome to our newest members here at the GACC South. We look forward to seeing all of you at our future events!
