During the last AGM held at the residence of HE Ambassador Van Eechoud-Burghgraef we thanked our previous executive committee for their effort and warm contact over the period they were in charge of the Dutch Business Council Qatar. As three members of the Committee will move on, we wish Cees van Amelsfoort, Nino Keijner and Jan Brouwer lots of luck and hope to welcome them regularly during the council’s upcoming events. Again a big thank you from all DBCQ members.
With the stepping down of the 2015 committee, we also welcome a new executive committee which is very excited to take on the role coming year and support Dutch business in Qatar and to expand our current network. The new executive committee for 2016 is made up out of;
-Henk Jan Hoogendoorn (Chair);
-Matthijs Westra (Treasurer);
-Iulia Dobrea (Events);
-Stephanie Bol (Events);
-Yoeri van Rumund (Marketing and communications);
-Taco Engelaar (Marketing and communications);
As mentioned we are excited about the year to come and although market conditions are challenging, the role of the DBCQ is all the more relevant and we look forward to supporting Dutch companies and individuals working in Qatar.
For our first event we invite all of you to the monthly “Borrel” this time held at Trader Vic’s at the Hilton Hotel Doha. Not only are we looking forward to introduce ourselves as executive committee but more importantly we want to hear from you what we should focus on and what you look forward to seeing from the DBCQ. We will have a reserved spot outside while we still can enjoy the great weather so come and join us for a drink.
Please feel free to bring colleagues or friends that you would think enjoy being part of the DBCQ (Dutch or non-Dutch) as it would be the right time to become a member at the beginning of the new term. Please find below location and details for the next event:
