Event report

AGM and Gala Reception

The BCCH's 2011 Annual General Meeting, where the Chamber's management reported on the 2010-2011 financial year and where the new BCCH Council was elected, took place on 26 May 2011 at the Boscolo New York Palace. It was followed by a Gala Reception, marking the Chamber's 20th anniversary, where members and non-members alike joined former and current BCCH management and staff in celebrating this milestone in the organisation's life.
BCCH office move

After having considered various options, the management of the Chamber has decided to move the BCCH office to a new location in a more prestigious and business-friendly area in Budapest. We will be occupying a smaller but improved space in Madách Trade Center, a serviced office building. The new address will be 1075 Budapest, Madách I. út 13-14, and the move will be conducted by BCCH member Interdean Hungary Ltd, and aided by the Chamber's newsletter and IT service provider, Visionline Kft. The new office will be up and running by 15 June, and we will keep all members and partners informed about the detailed schedule.

BCCH members' database

The BCCH is launching a new service to make sure that members can communicate with each other more efficiently. We are asking for your help in creating a database that is accessible to all members of the BCCH, enabling them to find contacts in a given field easily and effectively. In order to be able to do that, we not only need you to update your contact details, but also have your consent that they can be given to other BCCH members. Thus, if you agree with the notion of such a database, please read and fill in the consent form, then send it back to bcch@bcch.com along with the contact details you wish to feature.
