ChamberBrief 2017: June Edition

Dear Members and Friends,

The GACC Awards are the highest accolade in German-American business. We are happy to announce that the Award Applications are now open! As developments in tech and industry 4.0 are transforming business at a rapid pace, we are excited to introduce a new category: Excellence in Digitalization.

Join the group of previous award winners such as FORCAM, Vetter, or Zentis and be recognized as a leader in Digitalization, Innovation or Service. Winning one of our prestigious awards gives your company national recognition and visibility across all GACC media channels as well as U.S. and German press coverage. All members are encouraged to apply now!

Become a sponsor of our nationwide GACC Awards Gala and the 2017 Digitalization Forum

President Trump has just finished his workforce development week with an executive order nearly doubling the investments into apprenticeships. At the same time, five of our ICATT companies swept National Fund awards for their apprenticeship efforts. Learn more about how dual apprenticeship systems can boost your company's competitiveness on July 7, when we cohost an event with the Atlantic Council and the Delegation of the European Union to the United States.

Our Transatlantic Cluster Initiative is going strong. GACC Midwest representatives recently returned from a 5-day trip to Germany, and are now preparing for more events here in the US. The Cluster Initiative brings people and companies together from both sides of the Atlantic, and we hope to continue facilitating new business in industries such as Lightweighting and Health Care & Medical Technologies.
