The network of young professionals (Brussels New Generation) of the British Chamber of Commerce is organising a pub quiz to raise money for CHS
The CHS calendar is a popular publication and a reliable fundraiser for our organisation. This year, it took on a new role – as a recruitment tool. Sue and her husband Jim were given a copy by their relocation agency when they arrived in Brussels from the United States some months ago and it alerted Sue to the fact that CHS depends on a team of volunteers to run its office.
With a degree in Sociology from Gettysburg College, and a background in volunteering, Sue approached the office offering her services and was happy to take on the job of office administrator, as Anne Arthur was moving to a different role within the organisation. Sue's latest volunteer experience, before coming to Brussels, was six years as site director and mentor with the Youth Mentoring Partnership in Philadelphia. This organisation works with young people helping them to master goal setting skills and to build mental toughness and character through a concentrated programme of physical fitness and sport.
Sue and her husband Jim have three adult children, currently living and working in the USA and Europe. Asked "Why CHS?" Sue replied "I wanted to serve my new community in a volunteer capacity. I bring many years of experience working with families, women and youth in an attitude of compassion and love and look forward to continuing in that way with CHS."
CHS would like to expand the range of services on offer to the international community from our attractive premises at Avenue des Phalènes 26, 1000 Brussels. We are interested in self-employed professionals specialising in, for example, speech and language therapy, graphomotor (handwriting) therapy, occupational therapy, remedial teaching and learning support who would be interested to work with CHS for at least half a day each week.
On a horrendously wet evening on Monday 30 May, 26 teams involving more than 100 people battled it out in a pub quiz.
