Transatlantic Alumni Conference: Rethinking Transatlantic Relations
"Rethinking Transatlantic Relations" brings together American alumni from both CBYX and ABN and other German-American organizations to discuss the future of citizen diplomacy and networking in the current transatlantic landscape. We will also be celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals. The 3.5-day event includes a German Embassy staff reception, panel discussions, and membership meetings for ABN and CBYXAA alumni specifically. Members of the German Bundestag will be in attendance and participate in the panel discussions. A detailed agenda is being finalized and will be sent to registered attendees in the coming weeks, however, a preliminary schedule can be found below.

A link to the room block will be sent to you upon successful registration. Please note that the reserved block of rooms will be available until April 5, after that date, rooms and rates will be subject to hotel availability. Note that while we encourage alumni to stay together at the hotel during the conference, it is certainly not required, and you are welcome to find other accommodation.

The conference is generously co-sponsored with funds provided by the Deutschlandjahr/Wunderbar Together initiative, the German Bundestag and the US State Department, with key logistical assistance by Cultural Vistas.
