LATCAM Event Invitation
marking the official launch of the LATCAM Youth Committee
Dear Members, Partners and Friends,
We were proud and delighted to officially launch our new Chapter, the LATCAM Youth Committee (“LYC”).
The LYC aims at bringing together professionals and students who are between 20 and 40 years young, are based in Switzerland, and have a strong connection to or interest in Latin America.
We are also cordially welcoming all those who have a professional or academic network of youngs and want to contribute to make the LYC grow and prosper. Please start by forwarding this information to the qualifying youngs you know!
The highly motivated Organizational Team is planning a number of networking events throughout 2023 focusing on topics that are particularly relevant to younger generations.
To mark the occasion of this launch, we invited you to our first LYC event
