Dear Belgian and Canadian friends and BCBC members and partners.
I hope you enjoyed the summer and were able to take some time off for much needed vacations.
We know that social distancing will remain a constant for some time to come, and we harbour hope that a vaccine is just around the corner. In the meantime, we have discovered not only new technology and techniques, but also a certain tenacity in staying connected and keeping in touch with one another, treasuring even more than before every moment we spend together.
This is certainly true for all the BCBC Members who joined us for the beer-tasting event held on July 21, 2020, to mark the Belgian National holiday. Not only did we enjoy it immensely, having the pleasure of your company and tasting Belgian beers live within our community, we all discovered amazing new flavours of Belgian beers.As we are thinking about getting-together with BCBC Members and friends again, we believe the next item on our program will also be of the utmost interest.
We are planning to hold a webinar with the Honourable Philippe Couillard entitled: Preparing for Tomorrow today, the Pandemic and its aftermath. The webinar is co-sponsored with the CanCham BeLux, and will be held September 10, 2020, at 10:30 AM, local time and 4:30 PM Brussels time. Information regarding the registration is provided below.
We hope that this upcoming webinar will prove interesting and trigger an exciting exchange of views and opinions on the challenges of the recovery plan and the opportunities these might represent for our Belgian-Canadian community.
Please note that our Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020 at 6pm.
We look forward to seeing you again soon, if only virtually, but also in person as soon as possible circumstances permitting.
Stay healthy and take care of yourselves and your loved ones.
Xavier Van Overmeire, BCBC President
