On Sep 16, 2021, The N.C. Zeitgeist Foundation celebrated its opening of a branch in Charleston. It was an elegant event which took place in the Carolina Yacht Club and was made possible by a generous gesture of Anne and Dick Keigher.
The invitation-only Champagne-Reception and dinner were hosted by The N.C. Zeitgeist Foundation and the Hanns-Seidel Foundation, who had invited to this wonderful dinner. The event was also sponsored generously by the College of Charleston whose President Andrew Hsu attended as well as representatives of the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs and its Advisory Board.
Besides Mayor John Tecklenburg, other notable representatives of Charleston’s international business community and members of the city’s society also enjoyed the evening.
It is planned to share the events in the future. It is tentatively scheduled to have Jean-Arthur Régibeau, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Belgium come to the Carolinas on Jan. 25-27 to attend events in Charlotte, Charleston and at UNC at Chapel Hill.
On Wednesday, Sep. 15, The N.C. Zeitgeist Foundation started the staging of live events again: they invited Tomas Baert, Head of Trade + Agriculture at the E.U. Embassy in Washington, to give a key-note speech about new challenges in trade between United States on the one hand, and the European Union on the other hand. The invitation-only event took place at Dressler’s midtown and was attended by leaders of the international business community and County Manager Dena Diorio. The Hanns-Seidel Foundation had invited to the dinner and the Champagne-Reception was made possible by Roedl + Partners. Both contributions were very generous.
