Dear Friends of Amerika Haus e.V. NRW
North Rhine Westphalia is the German state with the most US companies (currently around 1,300) and a long tradition of transatlantic relations, promoted through the Amerika Haus which was founded in the heart of Cologne in 1955 .
As a founding member of the Amerika Haus e.V. NRW and the successor to the chair of the association of Baronin von Oppenheim, whom I would like to thank for her extraordinary service to the association, it is of particular importance to me to continue to give life to the cross-cultural and economic ties between the USA and North Rhine Westphalia and to expose particularly young people to the similarities between our cultures.
Therefore, I would like to encourage you to attend the many high caliber events of the association and to actively support the new board and myself in the pursuit of a larger membership.
Dr. Rainer Minz, Chairman of the Board
