IMPORTANT

Community Help Service is committed to the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and clients. During the current coronavirus situation, we have put in place guidelines which protect our community whilst reducing the impact on our services. This includes reducing our in-office staff and using video conferencing for our meetings and training.

If you visit the Centre as a client, we ask you to follow these rules:

1) Clients must wear a mask at all times whilst visiting the Centre unless explicitly stated by their therapist. They must also sanitise their hands upon entry.

2) Clients should arrive as close to their appointment time as possible and will be greeted at the door by their therapist. The waiting room is not in use.

3) Do not attend your appointment if you develop flu symptoms or respiratory complaints.

4) It is important that should you experience any COVID symptoms or test positive following a visit to our Centre, you notify CHS in writing, especially if your visit occurred within the 2 days prior to your symptoms appearing, so that appropriate action can be taken promptly.

AmCham Belgium's #Decision2020

A running commentary of the US Presidential Race

On both sides of the Atlantic, November 3, 2020 is a date to be marked on the calendar. There is little more than a month until the US Presidential elections, but the outcome is still far from certain.

Curious to find out where the candidates stand on the issues that matter most to voters? Join our virtual event '#Decision2020: A running commentary of the US Presidential Race' taking place on Friday, October 16.

Baron Frans van Daele, one of Belgium's most experienced diplomats, will open up the discussion with remarks on potential factors influencing the election, such as voter turn-out and the relative influence of foreign policy. He will also touch upon topics such as populism, law and order, and healthcare.

Following this introduction, van Daele will join a panel discussion with Pauline Manos, Chair of Democrats Abroad Belgium, and Mike Kulbickas, Chair of Republicans Overseas Belgium. The conversation will be moderated by Ian Lesser, Vice President and Executive Director of the German Marshall Fund of the United States in Brussels.

For both US and non-US citizens from all backgrounds, this is a unique opportunity to get an insight into the perspectives of the two sides of the political spectrum. For the first time this year, the Belgian party representatives of the Democrats and Republicans will share their opinion on the same stage!
