A message from the President
As the President of the International Press Club of Chicago, there’s very little which gives me greater pleasure than to announce to our esteemed friends and staunch supporters within Chicago’s Diplomatic Community, our Membership, and to Members of the Press, the details of the Inaugural Program of a new season of our Diplomatic Guest Speaker Luncheon series!
The Host Country for the first program in our 2016 series is…THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY - a country which never ceases to amaze the world! Germany has proven itself time and again to be one of the true leaders of the European Union, NATO, and of the EUROZONE. Through ever increasing numbers of innovations, achievements and unbridled creativity in: business, industry, commerce, and the arts, Germany has long since realized its sense of place, responsibility, and duty on the world stage.
Add in the unmatched beauty of rolling green Alpine meadows set against the backdrop of the majestic Alps, pristine lakes and rivers, seamlessly connected to the most modern of cities on the continent by world class air, sea, rail and road networks, and you’ve got an experience that only a country located at the very heart of Europe can deliver!
… And one which only our Diplomatic Guest Speaker and Host, Consul General for the Federal Republic of Germany in Chicago, The Honorable Herbert Quelle can bring to life and present in all its glory. This Diplomatic Event is free for IPCC members and their guests, and will take place on February 18, 2016 beginning at 11:30 a.m. at The Goethe-Institut Chicago, located at 150 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 200, Chicago Illinois, 60601. Seating is limited and admittance will be by “RSVP Only” received by February 16th with no walk-ins permitted!
Again, seating is limited so we urge you to reserve your seat today simply by using the easy registration button on the front page of our website or by calling me at (708) 514-2353!
