The Chattanooga Branch of the British American Business Group was formed in Chattanooga in February 2012 and now has a membership that has grown to approximately 35 members. Michael Goode and Ken Goldsmith have become the co-chairs of the branch.
“We hope to continue the great tradition of quality events that was started by the BABG Chattanooga Branch founder, Terry Olsen,” said Mr. Goode.
The BABG Chattanooga Branch's Organizational meeting will be on Feb. 18 at 5:30 p.m. at 535 Chestnut St. At this meeting the organization of the upcoming events will be discussed, and committees will be formed.
Under the leadership of Mr. Olsen, the British American Business Group Chattanooga Branch dedicated itself to promoting connections, trade and investment and supporting economic growth between the Southeast United States and the United Kingdom. As such, BABG Chattanooga has connected with the United Kingdom and with other nations around the world, such as Peru, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, and Taiwan. This meeting is a chance to be introduced to the group, and to have some influence over its future events, and to be a part of the group’s future success.
The UK Trade meeting will be on March 18 at 5:30 p.m. at 212 Market, on 212 Market Street in Chattanooga. Claire Newman MBE, British vice consul, Atlanta, will be the speaker for this event. FSG Bank will be the corporate sponsor. There will be free appetizers and a cash bar.
